Helping Children with Special Needs to Learn, Succeed and Thrive.

That’s what Omni Therapeutics does – and has done across Chicagoland for over 40 years.


What Drives Us Forward?

We are driven by a mission to provide exceptional specialized services to all children in need wherever we go. Our vision brings together multiple disciplines that address every child as a whole, while providing a supportive and enriching environment for our therapy teams. Omni attracts and recruits dedicated, passionate and talented practitioners to work together across disciplines to care for each child that we serve.

This progressive approach involves our school-based Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech/Language Pathologists, Social Workers and Psychologists.

Together with child, parent, and teacher consultations, Omni’s dynamic teams collaborate to design tailored treatment programs that help children learn, succeed and thrive.

Omni Therapeutics is proud to be connected with public and private schools across the Chicagoland suburbs. Our direct, group, and consultative school-based therapy services benefit from the long-term partnerships between school districts and Omni’s multidisciplinary treatment teams – improving efficiency, stability and consistency for everyone.
