Why CST Academy

We Celebrate the Unique Learning Style of Every Child

Why CST Academy? CST Academy, a thriving preschool-style day program in Chicago, offers a unique multidisciplinary approach that supports children in meeting pivotal developmental milestones. To embrace the needs of each child, the program is guided by top pediatric speech-language pathologists, feeding therapists, occupational therapists, and ABA therapists.

With an unprecedented 3-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, children receive individualized care to meet targeted goals in a range of areas, including speech and language, behavior, sensory integration, feeding, social skills, and more. Every component of our daily routine is rooted in evidence-based practices and diligently planned by a team of fully licensed and certified speech-language pathologists.

Parental collaboration is a critical aspect of early childhood development, so CST Academy parents receive daily communication from teachers summarizing their child’s participation in activities and progress notes.
