What is speech therapy?

Speech therapy is a type of therapy that helps children improve their communication skills. It addresses various areas, including speech sounds, language development, social communication, fluency, and feeding/swallowing difficulties.

How do I know if my child needs speech therapy?

If you have any concerns about your child's speech, language, or communication development, it's always a good idea to consult with a speech-language pathologist. They can assess your child and determine if therapy is necessary.

What age should my child start speech therapy?

The earlier a child starts speech therapy, the better the outcomes. We offer therapy for children of all ages, from toddlers to adolescents. Early intervention is especially crucial for young children with language delays.

How long does speech therapy take?

The length of therapy varies depending on the child's individual needs and goals. Some children make significant progress in a few months, while others may require longer-term support.

Do you offer virtual speech therapy (teletherapy)?

Yes, we offer teletherapy sessions for families who prefer or require remote services. This can be a convenient option for busy families or those who live far from our clinics.

What services does Chicago Speech Therapy provide?

"We had the most wonderful experience with Chicago Speech Therapy! Our speech pathologist, Miss Megan, developed a bond with our son almost immediately. By week two, he would await her arrival by the window in our front door! She quickly discovered all of his favorite things and would bring so many toys of her own that would keep him engaged and wanting to talk! She gave us (parents) tons of strategies to work with on our own in between her weekly visits. Our son made consistent progress under her care and has now been released from speech therapy ~ which actually makes us so sad ~ simply because we miss Miss Megan! She basically became part of our family and will be dearly missed. I couldn’t recommend Miss Megan and Chicago Speech Therapy more!"

"The process w/ CST was smooth, from the intake process, registration, processing insurance to on-going communication. Sarah was the Speech Therapist for our 9-year-old and she established a wonderful rapport with her and gained her trust over the months. I highly recommend CST."
