Family Resources

Partners in Care

A child's success in therapy is optimized when the parents and family are actively involved in the process.  Therefore, Beth encourages parents to participate in/observe therapy sessions as much as possible.

  • Beth maintains frequent communication with parents 
  • She provides functional home practice ideas to encourage carryover of skills
  • If parents prefer, Beth will travel to a child's school/daycare setting for therapy, involving teachers in the plan of care as appropriate
  • Beth accommodates working parents by scheduling occasional evening sessions to reconnect with parents face-to-face 

Support for Parents

Home-based care is highly effective, individualized, and convenient.  However, without needing to leave the home, parents can sometimes feel isolated from other parents/families who also have their children in therapy.  Over the past several years, Beth has created innovative platforms for parental support including:

  • Facebook Group: "Early Intervention Support for Parents in NW Suburban Chicago"
  • In-Person Monthly "Early Intervention Playgroups" at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library

Connecting with other Parents

"Early Intervention Support for Parents in NW Suburban Chicago" Facebook Group

  • As creator and administrator of this group, Beth now has established a network of over 1,600 local parents and professionals
  • Informal and safe place to ask questions, start discussions, and provide resources
  • Share in successes and commiserate about challenges
  • Create connections and network with other families
  • Participate in local events designed to foster social camaraderie, information gathering, and advocacy/awareness.
