Chicago’s Premier ABA Therapeutic Preschool

An autism diagnosis can be scary, but with our top rated therapeutic preschool, we help our families have faith in their children’s potential.

What We Offer

Our full day ABA Therapeutic Preschool in Chicago is a collaborative effort between our expert multidisciplinary team. Curated with your child’s goals and wellbeing in mind.

ABA therapeutic preschool is a developmental  program that uses Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques to help young children learn and develop essential skills. It focuses on helping kids with a range of developmental needs, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), language delays, socialization issues, or other behavioral challenges. Through positive reinforcement and individualized teaching, ABA helps these children become more independent and successful in their everyday lives.

Parent Involvement

Our BCBA’s provide family treatment guidance for of our student’s parents to go over goals, progress, and treatment plans in great detail.

We also work collaboratively with all parents to provide strategies and solutions for families to use at home to continue fostering development outside of school.

In-Depth Support for Insurance Coverage

Our team goes to great lengths to complete evaluations and write quality treatment plans that insurance reviews for approval. Our billing team then reviews Insurance coverage and payments which will depend on out of pocket max per the family policy.

This provides a tremendous value to our parents to ensure that you are maximizing your benefits.

Highly sought after multidisciplinary team

Your child will be immersed in a rich learning environment and guided by sought after board-certified behavior analysts, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists, licensed social workers and ABA therapists.

Customized daily schedules and programs to fit your child's goals and needs.

Every child that steps foot through our doors has different needs and goals. Therefore, every treatment plan, materials and individualized goals are thoughtfully curated and customized to fit your child’s developmental goals and milestones.

This allows us to prevent gaps in learning as we prepare your child for a standard school environment.

An enriched environment

Our therapeutic preschool is a supportive environment focused on helping your child with special needs develop life skills, form healthy relationships and reach developmental milestones. It provides individualized attention, patience and understanding to each child in order to create an atmosphere of trust and safety.

We provide guidance and encouragement in an intimate setting of 5 children per class, so that all students can experience success while learning important social-emotional, academic and physical skills in a preschool setting.

More individualized and customized than standard preschool

Traditional preschool curriculums are spearheaded by a general lesson plan delivered in a general teaching method that is applied to all children in the classroom. All children in traditional schools are upheld to the same expectations in order to progress onward.

Our customized therapy program at Lumiere is delicately personalized to every child that steps through our door. Our team of therapists conduct an in-depth assessment on your child to understand the exact areas your child may need support with. This allows our team to design a hyper-focused treatment plan on the developmental areas that need improvement, thus building up essential skills to ensure your child does not fall behind. All of this is implemented in a school-like setting to prepare your child for an eventual transition that is appropriate for them

What Your Child Can Expect

Unmatched support and care for every child.

What Parents Can Expect

High graduation rates

We pride ourselves in having extremely high graduation rates for our students. Our passion is helping your child reach their full potential and to developmentally excel so that they can navigate life and beyond.

Time investment required for
your child and you

Majority of children who attend our therapeutic preschool are with us for a minimum of 6 months. Your child may have the opportunity to learn and grow with us for even a few years before they are set to transition to grade school.

Does insurance cover therapeutic preschool?

Our team goes above and beyond to ensure that you can take full advantage of insurance coverage. We execute an extremely thorough insurance coverage check that allows for our families to get maximum insurance coverage for our school.

How is my child’s progress monitored?

Our team gathers extensive data every time we are supporting your child. Every therapist takes detailed notes during all interactions with your child. Progress is highly monitored and our team is constantly working collaboratively to tweak goals and milestones for monitoring progress. Because each child has an individualized treatment plan, we are constantly analyzing your child’s data and progress to nurture and optimize our time together.

How many children are in each class?

In addition to your child having a 1:1 therapist ratio, we limit class sizes to 5-6 children. This allows our BCBA’s the opportunity to have a smaller case load resulting in offerings and treatment plans that are much higher quality, mindful and extremely thought out. When BCBAs have a higher caseload, it can dilute quality of care. It is one of our utmost priorities to ensure the BCBA dedicated to your child’s case has the time to provide the highest quality service possible.


What Our Families are Saying

“Lumiere is an amazing place. I am so thankful for everything that they are doing for my son. He has gained so many new skills since being here. The therapists are all so knowledgeable in their field. They are the best and the absolute sweetest with my son. He feels happy coming here every morning.

There are other therapeutic schools that I looked at before I decided for Lumiere. Lumiere offers so much more than other therapeutic schools. I hope they keep growing because there are so many kids who need them. I drive 45 minutes there and back everyday because that’s how much of a big difference it is making in our family’s lives. I have nothing but love and respect for them.  They have been the best choice I have ever made for my son.  Thank you Lumiere!”
