My Story

I’m originally from New Jersey where I taught preschool for three years. While working in a preschool, I spent a year dedicated to research on children with autism. Fell in love with those kiddos, and I wanted to continue working with them. I found a job out here in Chicago working as a Behavior Therapist and ran with it. I worked for that company for a couple of months before I moved over here to Blue Bird Day!

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
