    review rating 5  We love BDI, and we love our daughter’s wonderful speech therapist Jess K. She is so knowledgeable and is also a great listener and is very intuitive. Jess is one of our daughter’s favorite people and she runs to therapy each session smiling and singing her name. We have been seeing Jess for over 1.5 years. Jess comes up with creative ways to elicit the speech sounds we need to work on, she provides easy homework and at home ideas to practice at home and really cares about knowing our whole family, not just our daughter. We have built a great working relationship and I am so grateful to have her working with us! The gym and facility at BDI is wonderful. I love that our daughter can play and wiggle and be active while she does her speech - it is motivating and fun. It also gives her the chance to be social and work on speaking to other kids. All the staff, particularly Sherry, Ruby and Sue are helpful and compassionate which is important when dealing with tricky matters in insurance and billing. Thanks to everyone at BDI for being caring and bringing your best effort each time to come.

    review rating 5  We have a child who has received services at BDI Playhouse (speech, OT and PT) for about a year and a half now. I would highly recommend BDI playhouse to other families. First of all, we have absolutely LOVED each of the therapists we have worked with. They clearly care about our child’s progress and are always willing to answer my questions and provide ideas or suggestions as needed. I also appreciate that they will communicate amongst themselves to discuss my son’s goals and to make sure we’re looking at the big picture. He has made tremendous progress during his time at BDI. They are also excellent at helping me navigate other options to explore. One of BDI’s biggest strengths is that their office staff is as wonderful as their therapists. We recently went through a frustrating insurance issue where we needed to obtain approval for additional PT sessions. Insurance was (surprise surprise) slow to address the matter but the wonderful team at BDI did a ton of work on their end to get the approval for additional sessions. They even held my son’s spot for weeks and weeks to ensure that he could be seen again as soon as the matter was resolved. I really appreciate how they helped me navigate this problem. I also want to touch on the fact that BDI offers some unique services. They do bike riding lessons, offer some aquatic therapy, feeding therapy, and they have several classes you can sign your child up for to help further their progress. They also offer a monthly gait clinic and will help you obtain orthotics as needed. Finally, their new facility is awesome, super clean and has a nice large waiting room. We have several options for therapy that our closer to us, but we are happy to be working with BDI!

    review rating 5  My experience with BDI in both the Aurora and Orland location has been incredible. I am a Chicago area Orthotist specializing in pediatrics. I work with many out patient facilities and BDI is always my top recommendation to families looking for services. The therapists are hand chosen for their specific skills, and they are continuously building on their knowledge and equipment. BDI offers children and their families so much, it is truly the full package. Things like aqua therapy, serial casting, and gait clinic are not available at most pediatric facilities. I am speaking not only as a medical professional who works with the therapists and office staff at BDI, but also as a mother who has had their child treated there. From insurance authorization help to complete satisfaction on therapeutic treatment of my child. Thank you BDI for all that you do!
