Early Intervention

Aspire Children’s Services is one of metro Chicago's premier providers of early intervention services. We provide pediatric therapies and specialized services that help infants, toddlers and children over the age of three improve their functioning in order to reach important developmental milestones. Our services are provided in the home or at the Eamon Shannon Center, our state-of-the-art facility in Hillside, Illinois (map). Services include:

  • Developmental Evaluations
    We help families determine if their child is meeting developmental milestones.
  • Comprehensive Evaluations
    We provide comprehensive evaluations in the areas of cognition, language, gross and fine motor skills, self-help skills and social-emotional and behavior issues.
  • Pediatric Therapies
    We provide developmental therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology and physical therapy.
  • Family Support
    We provide parents and family members a variety of opportunities for education and support throughout the year.

Our early intervention services meet the developmental needs of infants and toddlers in any one or more of the following areas:

  • physical development (movement)
  • cognitive development (learning)
  • speech and language development (communication)
  • social or emotional development (behavior)
  • adaptive development (use of existing skills)

Early intervention services usually begin with a developmental evaluation and screening, to determine if your infant or toddler is developing appropriately or to see if there is a possible delay in:

  • movement
  • communication
  • learning
  • behavior (social-emotional development and behavior)
  • self-help skills

Aspire Children’s Services partners with the State of Illinois Early Intervention System through Children and Families Connection, Illinois’ resource and referral office for early intervention services.
