Mission

EdAdvance’s Center for Children’s Therapy (CCT) provides therapeutic services to children and youth, from birth to 21 years of age, who exhibit developmental delays or who present specific therapy needs. Our services include physical, occupational, speech, and applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy as well as a subset of specialities addressing alignment issues, sensory processing difficulties, feeding, and oral motor challenges. Ultimately, we strive to prepare children for successful engagement in life and we celebrate their progress in achieving new skills, building friendships, surmounting challenges, and gaining independence.

Services

The Center for Children’s Therapy (CCT) provides one-to-one therapy services specifically tailored to each child’s needs across all stages of development: birth, infant/toddler, childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. Our therapy sessions are child-centered and individualized. Each child receives a comprehensive evaluation, which includes parent/child interviews, clinical observations, standardized assessments, and a written summary of recommendations. CCT uses a multi-disciplinary approach to deliver specialized assessment and intervention services covering a broad range of therapeutic needs, including:

  • Physical therapy to improve balance, coordination, range of motion, and mobility
  • Sensory Integration
  • Motor planning and daily living skills
  • Therapy for developmental delays in all areas including those associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Occupational therapy

"Engaging occupational therapy services at the Center for Children's Therapy has made our daughter successful in school. I am happy to see that working on the core of her body has increased her skills." - Eileen B., Cornwall, CT

"I love it at CCT. Our spech pathologist is terrific! She has helped my son from the beginning. My only regret is that I didn't know about it sooner. It has made my life and my son's life a lot easier." - Robin D., Torrington, CT

Coordination with School District Services

Our assessment services may be used in conjuction with school-based Planning and Placement Team (PPT) services to assist in determining appropriate Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals. The location of these assessments is flexible and is tailored to suit student and parent needs. As indicated, children who currently receive services in the school that they attend are welcome to also receive additional therapeutic treatment CCT’s Brooker Memorial location. We are also available to collaborate with school district personnel to plan for and ensure the continuation of therapeutic care for students throughout the summer months. Additionally, when a determination has been made to transition from school-based services, CCT is a resource for children to continue therapy at the parents’ request.

Team

Our specially-qualified team of therapists includes physical, occupational, and speech language pathologists, Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), and therapeutic assistants to meet the needs of youth and their families. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive therapy services that are designed to serve and support each child’s unique potential. Drawing on many years’ experience in providing therapy services, we believe the participation of family and caregivers in the therapeutic process is vital to empower children to reach their full potential. In this spirit, our therapists prioritize ongoing communication and collaboration with parents concerning their child’s needs and progress as well as recommend home exercises to bolster growth and development.
