Chicago Kids Therapy is a group of passionate physical therapists who specialize in working with children. Whether your child is just a few months old or 5 years or more, we can help.
Chicago Kids Therapy provides completely individualized physical therapy care for every child. The Chicago Kids Therapy team places a high value on parental collaboration, so clinicians work closely with parents and primary caregivers to create an evidence-based treatment plan that targets individualized goals.
Clinicians also collaborate with other pediatric professionals on a multidisciplinary team of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapists, and behavior analysts to ensure that every child receives the most comprehensive care possible.
We believe in the value of education and parent collaboration
Chicago Kids Therapy works with children to build independence in critical age-appropriate skills that are needed to complete daily tasks. This may be addressed by facilitating the child’s gross motor skills, general strength and endurance, and age-appropriate balance skills.
The team has extensive experience working with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), gross motor delays, gait abnormalities, torticollis, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy (CP), generalized muscle weakness, hypotonia, infants born prematurely, toe walking, and genetic abnormalities.
Throughout the therapeutic process, the goal is for the parent to become the expert on strategies so that they can promote their child’s progress and independence at home. Parents can carry over their child’s therapeutic success by using provided home programs and strategies.
A range of therapeutic settings, including in-home therapy
Chicago Kids Therapy offers services in a range of settings including clinic-based therapy, in-home therapy, telehealth, and in CST Academy.
CST Academy is the practice’s therapeutic preschool-style program that provides additional support for key developmental skills including speech and language, social skills, motor skills, and more.
