Westside Children’s Therapy – Machesney Park has opened to support our Rockford clinic and the growing need for ABA and pediatric services in Winnebago County.
The Rockford location opened its doors to its brand new clinic in early January 2023 after serving the community with in-home ABA Therapy, as well as a short time in a temporary clinic.
The new Westside – Machesney Park is located 1205 West Lane Road, Machesney Park, IL 61115. The clinic is next to the Machesney Crossing Shopping Mall, which is a perfect place to stop by while your kid is in therapy.
The Machesney Park location will offer ABA Therapy for kids with Autism. The clinic will also provide Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy services.
The clinic features a spacious ABA Gym with a swing, tables for more focused 1 on 1 and group work, private rooms and calming nooks and rooms if kids need a little break.
Westside’s sensory gyms are the highlight of our clinics as it has a rock wall, monkey bars, foam crash pits, swings and more! This gym is highly utilized by all disciplines, especially Occupational Therapy, but is a fun, but therapeutic part of therapy for everyone.
There are also private speech therapy rooms to allow for increased 1 on 1 attention, and focus for children and their therapist. However, both gyms are utilized to add a social component to their therapy plan if necessary.
One thing remains consistent: Therapy at Westside is designed to be FUN! Kids like to play and learn best through play, so why should their therapy be any different? Play-based therapy will help your kid stay engaged and enjoy coming to Westside with the goal in mind of achieving life-changing results.
Westside Children’s Therapy continues to offer ABA Therapy at this state of the art pediatric clinic.
ABA at Machesney Park offers 3 programs for children with Autism. IGNITE is a preschool-like program for children ages 2-6 looking to gain skills to make them successful in a typical school environment. RISE is offered in conjunction with IGNITE, but is for more advanced learners. FOCUS is an after-school program for those looking to further sharpen their social and community skills.
In addition to ABA Therapy, the Machesney Park clinic is a multi-disciplinary center and the following therapies can be scheduled at this location:
