Northern California Children’s Therapy Center (CTC)

No child should go through life with a disability that could be prevented through early intervention. CTC provides a multidisciplinary program of continuing physical, occupational and speech and language therapy for infants, toddlers, and children through adolescent age. They serve children and infants in a well-equipped center as well as in the home and in schools. CTC’s services are available to all children in our community regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
