Speech language pathologists, or SLPs, play an important role in helping children with communication issues such as conversation, non-verbal communication and concept skills. At BY YOUR SIDE, we are very fortunate to have several SLPs at both our Burr Ridge and Schaumburg centers who are highly skilled and very dedicated to helping our kids with skills that will be with them for the rest of their lives.

BYS 015 Julie Stretch: Parent of a child on the spectrum talks about how they found ABA.
Released: January 25, 2016
Julie has recently been on both sides of her understanding of ABA therapy. The before, where her son didn’t start yet and she was researching if it was the right fit. And the after, seeing firsthand what ABA can do. Julie walks us through the good and bad of what she heard and ultimately the positive results she sees in her son.
“I’m very happy to see how my son’s OT skills have improved as a result of some of the tasks he’s been working on in ABA. Anytime he plays with a toy independently (this isn’t often, but it’s an emerging skill), I get very excited!”
