  • CST is a life-changing environment. We could not be more grateful to Mandy, Nainee, Lauren and the entire staff. Our son finished 8 months here in May and it was very difficult saying goodbye. From the moment you and your child walk through the doors, they are encouraging, loving and supportive at all times. Within days, we saw massive changes in our son’s language, play and demeanor. He is exponentially more social, interactive and happy because of his time spent at CST. We will sorely miss everyone here, but are beyond grateful that they have helped him gain the tools necessary to continue on his preschool journey.
  • CSTA is the best out there. The therapists, teachers, and administration go above and beyond to make the experience for you and your child nothing short of a dream come true. Their communication, attention to detail, lesson plans, follow-through, and expertise within their professions is truly astounding. My child was so well cared for over the past two years that she has been attending CSTA because her therapists and teachers genuinely love her and want the best for her. I too have felt well taken care of with the ease of communication and responsiveness of the administration. Thank you CSTA!!!
  • I am not surprised that CST Academy is one of the top therapeutic preschool-style and kindergarten programs in Chicago. CST Academy exhibits the vital tools and resources needed to help your child reach their greatest potential. I was happy to see the hands-on environment the therapists utilize in a classroom environment. The progress many of the students have made since attending CST Academy is incredible, as this program has proven to benefit everyone who walks through the doors. Overall, CST Academy is composed of the best therapists that will fit your child's needs.
  • I worked with CST Academy over a period of about 10 months. They are absolutely incredible! I also referred a friend to their program and the progress his child made just blew him away! Usually, I don’t write reviews unless I feel strongly compelled one way or the other, and in this case I do! You cannot go wrong here. I would not trust my children to anyone else. Call them and see for yourself. I have seen other programs and there is just no comparison.
  • This program will work wonders for your child’s speech and language. Think of this as a preschool with a language focus. It is run and taught by top-notch speech language pathologists. I personally know the instructors. Each and every instructor is knowledgeable in the field, kind, and has a passion for teaching children! It is an amazing concept.
  • From observing multiple days of CST academy, it is evident that it is an incredible program. Highly trained speech-language pathologists run the program. It tailors to each kid specifically within a group setting, so the children make unbelievable gains! I highly recommend CST academy to anyone who is considering it!

CST Academy is such a magical place. Samantha loved it. She looked forward to it every day. The instructors, teachers and staff are amazing so caring and kind. Sam blossomed while at CST Academy.

CST Academy has an impeccable way of catering to every child's needs to make them most successful and reaching their full potential. The dedication the teachers and staff have to expanding language and facilitating skill sets is incomparable to other preschools I've looked into.

Mandy, Emily, and Ali really take the time to plan out lessons and skills that every child needs, at all skill levels. Every activity is purposely intentional to improve speech, language, and social skills!

The biggest selling point to me was also the fact that there are services that can be done within the classroom setting, such as OT and ABA! This really sets the children up for success! If you are looking for a therapeutic preschool, choose CST Academy. You wouldn't be disappointed!

I am super happy with all of the staff at CST Academy. Ali is exceptional! She is so patient.. I especially love how she talks afterward to provide a description of what exactly was worked on in the session and how each child participated or behaved that day. Everything is very personal. Ali really cares. It is also obvious all of the children love being at CST Academy! Cannot say enough how much I love this program!

CST Academy is the place to go if you’re seeking a therapeutic school for your child. The fabulous team of teachers are knowledgeable, professional, and personable. They tailor the curriculum to the needs of each individual child. You can trust that your child is in good hands at CST Academy. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the Chicagoland area!
