Tele-Intervention At CTC
A Comprehensive Nonprofit Pediatric Therapy Program
We maximize the potential of children with special needs.
Children’s Therapy Center is the largest and most comprehensive independent nonprofit pediatric therapy program in Washington State. Since 1979, we’ve provided essential services for children with special needs including physical, occupational and speech therapy; early intervention services; and parent education and support. In partnership with parents and caregivers, we celebrate where each child is today and work toward who they can become. Last year, we served over 3,000 children in South King and Pierce counties.
Parents are involved every step of the way…every day.
Parents are partners in their child’s therapy. We teach them how to include therapeutic strategies into their child’s daily routine.

An array of services to benefit a child’s many needs.
