My experience as a Speech-Language Pathologist began at Helping Hand Center, a therapeutic day school on the southwest side of Chicago. At Helping Hand, I worked with students from age 3-22 with a primary diagnosis of autism. I provided services in the areas of expressive and receptive language, social/pragmatics, apraxia of speech, articulation, auditory processing disorders, fluency, and AAC. Thereafter, I transitioned to Easterseals Academy in Chicago in which I work with kids with the following disabilities: cerebral palsy, autism, EBD, intellectual disability, ADHD, ODD, and others. I aim to help each student communicate in whichever mode is functional (i.e., low and/or high tech AAC, Picture Exchange System, communication boards, verbal speech, etc.). I strive to make learning fun and interactive for all my clients while simultaneously targeting their goals.

Carolyn was amazing from day one. She was kind and patient. She made my daughter feel comfortable, listened to her, and respected her. She came with level-appropriate activities that my daughter enjoyed very much. She knew just the way to challenge her to improve as well. My daughters speech improved dramatically after just a couple weeks with Carolyn. Carolyn was also great at explaining to me what she was doing, how my daughter was progressing, and allowed me to be very involved in the process which put me as ease. Having in-home therapy is a game changer and just what our family needed. Our daughter couldn’t wait to see Carolyn again and jumped for joy every time she came over. Highly recommend her! -TherapyWorks Parent

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
