Megan Hanson

Speech Language Pathologist

Hi, I'm Megan!

I provide in-home speech and language therapy in the western suburbs of Chicago. Working one-on-one with families with an intentionally small caseload allows me to spend the time to get to know your family and individualize evaluation and treatment in order to provide the highest quality services. I am here to support you and your child as we work to achieve their goals (while having a lot of fun)!

I am an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO. Superbills are provided for out of network plans.

Speech therapy sessions are conducted in your home. Treatment is individualized to target your child's goals while incorporating their unique needs and interests. I strive to make therapy fun, engaging, and highly effective.

The benefits of in-home therapy include the opportunity for caregivers to observe sessions and have techniques and strategies demonstrated and questions answered. I provide suggestions for implementation of techniques in daily routines and activities to promote carryover of skills.

My belief is that strong therapist-family communication is integral to success in therapy.

Parent Testimonials

"I truly cannot recommend Megan highly enough. She worked with my daughter from when she was around 20 months old until she was 3. Megan was instrumental in getting the correct diagnosis. My daughter had Childhood Apraxia of Speech, and Megan recognized this quickly. Furthermore, she spotted the early signs of my daughter's Anxiety disorder and helped us figure out how to find help for this.

Beyond her proactive approach, Megan is also the most caring therapist I have ever come across. She genuinely cared so much for my daughter and wanted the best for her. She went above and beyond in working with me to figure out best practices and approaches. She was always willing to listen to a recording of my daughter's speech or to discuss a plan of action outside of our scheduled therapy sessions. Megan was so invested in my daughter's success and we appreciated this so much!

Megan is also a gifted speech therapist. My daughter's sessions were always productive and Megan knew just how to adjust on the fly to whatever my daughter needed. Megan was always organized and thorough. She was a great advocate for my daughter whenever we needed to talk to other professionals regarding her various issues. She helped tremendously when my daughter transitioned to speech in the school system at age 3.

Megan is excellent at her job while also being a genuinely warm and caring soul. We were so lucky to have worked with her and any other family that does will think the same."

"Megan is an outstanding speech therapist and we cannot say enough great things about her! She has been working with my son for 6+ months and he has made incredible strides thanks to her. Megan is educated, thoughtful, and engaging. My son loves his therapy sessions with Megan and we are so appreciative of her! We definitely recommend Megan!”

-Katherine, mom

“Megan has been working with my daughter for over four months now and my daughter loves her! Megan is incredibly thorough, detailed, and consistent. Her enthusiasm for working with kids is so evident and she always has fun games/crafts to keep my daughter engaged. I can see the progress in my three year old’s speech patterns (and her confidence) since starting and would highly recommend Megan to anyone looking for a speech therapist!”
