I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Communication Clubhouse for over a year and a half with both of my two young children. Natalie L. was assigned to our family as our speech language pathologist through the Illinois Early Intervention program in early 2014. My son began working with Natalie and the Clubhouse team shortly after his second birthday to deal with speech and feeding obstacles that were impeding his quality of life. Now, at age three and a half, my son has made significant progress in each of these areas, which I attribute greatly to Natalie’s efforts.


The routine written reports I received throughout our treatment tenure were infinitely helpful in understanding my son’s growth and strengths, as well as areas for continued improvement.  Natalie constantly made herself available as a resource and consistently offered at-home activities for my husband and I to practice with our son each week. She even made time in her busy schedule to observe my son at his school in order to better develop appropriate goals for a variety of settings.


After the wonderful progress we saw with our son’s speech and language development, our family had no doubts that we would use the staff at the Clubhouse again for our young toddler daughter who also was exhibiting signs of a developmental speech delay. As with our son, Natalie meets with our daughter once a week for an hour-long session – always with a smile on her face and an abundance of creative activities to aid in her development.


We could not be more pleased with the results we have seen, and continue to see, with our toddler and preschooler. Natalie and every staff member at the Clubhouse have been extremely helpful with my questions pertaining to billing, insurance, scheduling and parent resources. The team truly goes above and beyond and I am forever grateful for the help and peace of mind they have given our family.
