My daughter is receiving Speech, OT and PT therapy and ALL her therapist are amazing! She has improved SO much since she's been going to therapy at NSPT. The whole staff is so sweet and full of energy, and the therapists show a genuine interest in wanting to see my daughter do well. This isn't the first time my daughter has been in speech therapy, but it is the first time she is excited about it and you can actually see that she's learning, unlike with her past therapist (not here at NSPT) - Big Thanks to Julie on that!!read more

Our son Marky began going to Northshore right before he turned 3yr old. We began seeing Colleen for OTin the Bucktown location because he was having major melt downs and anxiety in social settings. He would crying and cling to my husband and I relentlessly even when we were around familiar faces such as his grandparents. When my daughter was born he refused to make in type of interaction with her. He would scream and cry instead of using words to communicate. Once we began seeing Colleen she recommended we begin speech therapy to help with Marky's communication skills. From this point our pediatrician had requested we have Marky take a Neuro test because the melt downs especially in social settings were still very severe. We of course reached out to NSPT and they helped us by connecting us with Dr. Issacs, she was very kind understanding and helpful. Marky was officially diagnosed with moderate high functioning Autism. Our hearts were broken. Dr. Issacs recommended that Marky begin receiving a minimum of 10 hours a week of ABA therapy. We met with Jennifer and her team of therapist, to call them amazing is not enough. Our Marky has grown and blossomed in ways we never could have imagined. By the age of 4yrs old his melt downs were minimal and he was speaking in full sentences requesting and expressing his thoughts and needs. We have been VERY blessed to have met Colleen and Megan and all of the therapist at Northshore. Currently we work with Brianna and her ABA team, and we still see Colleen and Megan for speech and OT they are our family. We absolutely LOVE them and could not begin to thank them for all they have done for not just our family, but our Marky. He now plays with his sister, has conversations with her and his cousins, is able to attend birthday parties and we can have people over our house without our little guy going into a complete panic attack. To me it feels short of a miracle. I will forever be embedded to Northshore and their more

I love that NSPT is so flexible with the therapy times. My son has gained so much from his therapy sessions. His therapists are both so loving and compassionate regarding his needs. I trust them and wouldn't want him anywhere else!read more

We have been with NSPT therapy for about a year now through our pediatrician's recommendation. We have enjoyed our experience with our Neuropsychologist who then recommended us to receive a reading program through their speech therapist. This has been a huge help to improve our daughter's reading ability and is in addition to the reading program she is receiving in school. The speech therapist was knowledgeable and really knew how to navigate our daughters challenges and strengths. I highly recommend them and have been for months more

We have had two of our three kids receive OT and/or speech at NSPT and have had such a wonderful experience with each child. Our oldest, was recommended for OT by a preschool teacher. We were skeptical and didn’t know what to expect. The two things that initially gave us comfort were that, first, our son LOVED going. Rock climbing wall, Superman swing...what isn’t to like?! Second, after every session, we got a very thorough and detailed email of what the therapist worked on, suggestions for home, area where she’s seen improvement and next goals. We’ve had a similarly great experience for our second son. With both boys, the improvement and meeting of goals was clear to us and the boys’ teachers. But, the biggest testament to NSPT’s integrity and commitment to doing right by the kids is our experience a year after our older son had stopped OT. His teacher suggested he go back for a re-evaluation. We did it and NSPT went through a thorough review. The feedback came to us in a detailed and thoughtful report and the recommendation? He’s doing great! No need for any special therapy, just good old fashioned play and sports. Their willingness to say to a parent “your child doesn’t need us” boosted the trust we already had in NSPT. They will be honest, thorough and will recommend what’s is really needed (or not) for your child!read more
