SIDER SPEECH & LANGUAGE
Courtney S. Sider, M.A. CCC-SLP/L
When you decide to put your child's communication into my hands, it immediately becomes my number one priority. I’ve been serving the Chicagoland community as a Speech & Language Pathologist since 2010. I value the relationships I form with each student, and believe that goes a long way in improving their communication outcomes. I provide my services right in the comfort of your home or in your child's daycare/school. Call or email to find out how I can help your child today.
TALKING TOTS CHICAGO, LLC
This class is designed for parents and caregivers of toddlers (~ 13 months - 2.5 years old) who are learning to communicate. Each week we will have fun incorporating music, toys and games along with a strategy to help elicit your child's language skills. Children will love learning to talk and socialize with their friends while parents leave with tools and strategies to use at home.
