About National Therapy Center

National Therapy Center is a minority owned, family-friendly practice that opened in 1990. We specialize in working with children with a range of speech, language, motor and cognitive disorders and learning challenges. Our team of over 50 therapists are experienced professionals in the areas of speech/language therapy, occupational therapy and applied behavior analysis (ABA). 

The wide range of talent and skills on our staff allows us to pair each child with the therapist who is best for them who then customizes a treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

Family Coaching Model

Our philosophy at National Therapy Center is that a family coaching allows for greater and more robust opportunities to promote child development and learning, as opposed to a direct therapy-provider approach. This approach generates significant improvement in a child’s skills and abilities. Trained therapists understand that delivering a service for an hour a week cannot compete with the coaching a family and a caregiver can provide, which allows a child to learn throughout the day, every day. This coaching process is used for children under the age of 3. Typically, these services are provided in a child’s natural learning environment, such as the child’s home or daycare center. If a child qualifies for these services, they are often provided free of charge to the family and covered by early intervention systems. For more information, reach out to us at contact@nationaltherapycenter.com

ABA & Autism Services

 

National Therapy Center has working relationships with several colleges and universities, including the Chicago School of Professional Psychology-DC campus. National Therapy Center offers a competitive annual professional development opportunity and tuition reimbursement program for eligible members of our ABA team, including RBTs and BCBAs.

Our staff has frequent opportunities to participate as part of a multi-disciplinary team with clients that receive multiple services with us, allowing for easier coordination of care and the opportunity to learn and collaborate with other professionals.

Our ABA program also has an internship program that allows RBTs who are accruing experience hours with us towards their BCBA/BCaBA to participate in a structured supervision program that includes activities outside of their direct service hours. In addition to the structured supervision program, the National Therapy Center also provides specific activities related to current clients' programs.

Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapy

 

Our therapists are encouraged to join a Clinical Practice Area if interested to deepen their knowledge and experience in one or more specialties. Some of our therapists choose this option while others continue to develop a broader set of skills and experiences as a Generalist.

These Clinical Practice Areas are terrific ways for therapists to meet and network with other professionals in their specialty, as well as to earn additional financial assistance for training and CEUs. As part of our commitment to our community, as our therapists advance in their Practice Area, National Therapy Center donates to the community charity of their choice. We also offer several opportunities to continue their professional development through professional training, conferences, in-office trainings and regular staff meetings.

We have relationships with many of the colleges and universities in the area for internships and continuing education.
