Pediatric Services

Physical Therapy- Illinois Only

Express Yourself Therapy offers physical therapy sessions, designed to incorporate parents and caregivers into the activities. Each session runs 50 or 80 minutes, depending on what is best for the child. Our therapists use a variety of techniques, including play and games, to create opportunities for the child to work on their individual goals. We love to involve parents and caregivers in our sessions, as it benefits everyone!

*Palatine Location Only*

Speech-Language Therapy

Our individualized speech and language therapy sessions are 50 minutes long. During this time, your child’s therapist will use personalized interventions to give your child time to practice and grow in their goals and skills. As with all Express Yourself Therapy sessions, we love to invite parents and caregivers to be involved during therapy time. This way, the child feels even more comfortable and parents have the chance to see progress (and learn interventions to try at home).

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy at Express Yourself Therapy happens in 50-minute sessions, held Mondays through Saturdays. During their time with their Occupational Therapist, your child has the chance to participate in games and play that has been designed with your child’s preferences and goals in mind. Parents and caregivers are invited to attend sessions with your child – not only is it positive intentional time together, but caregivers can also watch progress happen in real-time while learning effective interventions to try at home.

Social Groups

Let’s have fun together while working on our social and language goals! Our social groups are matched for participants’ age, goals, and interests. Not every Express Yourself Therapy social group looks the same – we customize our groups based on the individuals involved. Groups vary in size, from 2-5 participants, and our facilitated play sessions are great for siblings, school peers, or other friends as well – anyone who your child wants to play with can be invited!

Pre-K/ Kindergarten Readiness Group

This program will be targeted for children who are preparing to enter preschool or kindergarten and who may benefit from a smoother transition into these settings, or for children who are already in pre-k/kindergarten and could benefit from additional, more individualized enrichment. This group targets skills worked on in preschool and kindergarten in a fun and interactive way. With letters and shapes of the day along with circle/story time, snack time, and a craft your child will keep up with the skills they need for the upcoming school year. Children will work on turn taking, sharing, and interacting with peers in an appropriate way. Independence will also be fostered. Ages: 3-6 years

Tot Group​ (Select Saturdays)

Do you want to increase your child’s gross, fine motor skills and coordination with creative play?

Each class includes activities involving music, water play, and lots of fun! Ages: 12-36 months
