GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities is excited to introduce the brand new speech therapy program!

The GiGi’s Playhouse Speech and Language program was initiated in the Summer of 2015 at the Hoffman Estates, Illinois Playhouse and is led by a full time speech-language pathologist. In April 2017, GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities will begin to offer the Speech and Language program, led by our part-time speech-language pathologist, Jennifer Parsons, MS/CCC-SLP.

The Speech and Language Program is open to participants of ALL AGES. Families must register for sessions each time they are offered. Registration is mandatory for involvement in the program. New participants are evaluated utilizing formal and informal measures and will receive therapy catered to their specific needs. Even better, this program, like all others at GiGi’s Playhouse, are provided completely FREE of charge to all of our families!

The primary goal of the Speech and Language program is to develop an individualized plan of care, tailored to each participant’s needs, to teach participants how to produce sounds, improve oral-motor function and increase language skills to communicate more effectively. In essence, participants will learn to develop or recover communication skills in order to fulfill educational, vocational and social roles.
