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

If you are concerned with your child’s speech or language development, please contact Chicago Speech Therapy by calling 312-399-0370 or by clicking on the “Contact Karen” button on the upper right section of this page.
