What is ‘Natural Environment’ speech therapy?

Natural environment speech therapy refers to speech and language therapy services being given in the client’s natural communication environments; whether it is his or her home, school, or after school care facility.

Chicago Speech Therapy  is proud to offer natural environment (in home) speech therapy services for several reasons:

1. Decreased “warm-up” time from when speech therapy starts until it becomes productive

2. It significantly reduces the child’s need to learn to generalize, or carryover skills learned in treatment to his or her natural communication environments because the skills are being taught in those environments

3. Because receiving speech and language therapy services are a positive, hassle-free experience; no more rush-hour traffic trying to get children to after-school therapy and then home to make dinner.

"Elizabeth was an incredibly communicative and supportive therapist for our daughter. We saw impressive improvement quickly, and our 2yo often looked forward to their weekly sessions. Our daughter just graduated from speech and we're so grateful for Elizabeth's expertise, empathy, and support over the past year!"

"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!"
