Our Agency

Kids First Words is a speech & language therapy agency located in Frankfort, IL and services Will and Cook Counties.  We specialize in speech-language therapy for children who have a wide variety of communication needs. All therapy is conducted in the child's home- the child's natural environment. 

Our therapists have experience with many types of children with special needs such as autism, apraxia, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, articulation, and phonology.  We are also active members of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Illinois Speech Language Hearing Association

If you have any questions about your child's speech and language development, call Kids First Words today to speak with a speech-language pathologist about your concerns.
Our Philosophy

Treating “the whole child,” as it relates to involving the family in the child’s skill-building.  We do this by gathering a comprehensive health history and identifying each child’s individual communicative needs.  We provide therapy in a home-based setting in the child’s natural environment as described by the Early Intervention model. 

Why It Works

Speech therapy that is provided in the child's natural environment enables parents to receive immediate and continuous feedback from the therapist regarding their child’s progress, as well as a consistent variety of activity ideas to help carry over newly learned skills throughout their child’s life.
