About our Children’s Therapy Clinic

The DeKalb clinic opened in Summer 2022 to support families in the DeKalb-Sycamore area. This clinic presents a bright, vibrant, fun environment which allows kids to be excited about therapy. This location will offer all pediatric therapy services, including ABA Therapy for kids with autism.  

While your child is at therapy, you have the convenience of grocery shopping at ALDI, picking up some must-haves at ROSS or Target, grabbing a coffee with a friend at Starbucks, or getting your arts and crafts supplies at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.  

ABA Therapy Services

The DeKalb ABA therapy team is run by an exceptional, compassionate BCBA that is known in the community for having deep experience and knowledge in the field, and a huge heart for helping children. She oversees a staff of RBTs that share in her passion for helping children.

About the BCBA

Allison was born and raised in the DeKalb area. She has pursued a career that allows her to give back to the local community. It is important to her that the focus of her services centers on offering a life changing experience for families. 

Allison started her career as an early childhood teacher before becoming a BCBA. She has spent the last last 5 years working as an in-home BCBA.

Her approach to therapy emphasizes self-empowerment and independence for each child. She is adamant about using the latest developments in ABA that are increasingly more client-centered. She enjoys providing a fun, playful experience for the kids she serves. On the weekends, you may find her kayaking around the Starved Rock state park.

Pediatric Therapy

The DeKalb clinic will be a multi-discipline pediatric therapy center, offering the following spaces:

  • Special room physical therapy
  • Private 1-on-1 rooms for counseling sessions
  • Rooms and work nooks for speech therapy
  • Feeding Therapy room
  • A sensory gym that can be used for both occupational therapy and physical therapy

The pediatric therapy teams collaborate across disciplines to support your child. For children that receive multiple services, they will be able to get it under the same roof. The DeKalb team is known throughout the community for their enthusiasm, passion, warm smiles and GREAT outcomes when it comes to the comfort of your child and the benefit of therapy. Having compassionate and understanding therapists that are dedicated to providing the best care possible for your family is exactly what the Westside culture is about.
