Why Choose Us

At Helping Hands, we use a collaborative, cross disciplinary approach that is unique. For example, a lot of language based disorders have a sensory motor component, therefore our speech therapists utilize sensory integration techniques in their treatment sessions to address the child's needs.

We provide solutions to target challenging situations. Our therapists will meet with parents at grocery stores, parks, etc. so we can address the challenges when they typically occur. We provide on-going family support with home suggestions, and on-going communication to address the child's needs.

offering innovative programs and opportunities

We offer innovative programs and opportunities for children who need therapeutic intervention, and whose families may not have the resources to get their child the services they need. During our free screenings, parents will walk away with suggestions on the spot to address their child's needs.

We offer recommendations for lifestyle changes that can have a positive impact on your child's function and performance. We are firm believers that many of our clients exhibit delays as a result of food sensitivities/intolerances, over use of antibiotics and other medications, environmental toxins, and toxicity overload.

Our office staff will help guide families to get the most out of their insurance benefits. We assist families in obtaining exemptions and grants to relieve the financial burden associated with medical care costs.

About Helping Hands Children's Therapy Services, Inc.

In the summer of 2005, we embarked on a journey built on the premise of ‘helping’, really ‘helping’ those in need. There are a lot of therapy practices out there that offer services. Our practice name was developed with the family in mind, specifically families that face the everyday challenges of improving the lives of their children.

We thank divine intervention every day for the idea and the basis for who and what we have become. A seed was planted in our hearts at our church during a message on Abraham about stepping out in faith, delivered to us at a time when we were at personal and professional crossroads in our lives.

Helping Hands started out as a single therapist making home visits. Today, we have a full staff of dedicated, compassionate therapists who deliver quality services at a 3600 square foot, state of the art facility that was designed to meet the unique needs of each child entrusted to our care.

At Helping Hands, we always start with a consultation. We invite families that do not know where to turn to call us, even if it is just to get some ideas, some direction on how to ‘help’ their child. After all, that is what Helping Hands is all about.

Our New Lenox, IL, based clinic serves the south suburbs of Chicago including the communities of Frankfort, Mokena, Manhattan, Homer Glen, Lockport, Orland Park, Tinley Park, Matteson, and Joliet. Families in the communities of Plainfield, Shorewood, Channahon, Morris, Minooka, and even rural areas, can in most cases drive to our facility in 30 minutes or less.

As a mother, I recommend getting help for your child at an early age because we've seen from our own child's results that it really does make a difference. The Helping Hands staff is incredible at what they do!
