When my son Jack was 4 months old, we realized he was struggling to hold his head up on his own and wasn’t even attempting to roll over. His pediatrician thought he may have low muscle tone (hypotonia) and suggested we get in touch with CTC to speak with a physical therapist in the Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) program.
It was December of 2020, and the coronavirus pandemic was in full swing. I was so pleased CTC was offering appointments via Zoom. Jack was officially diagnosed with low muscle tone and we began having weekly meetings with his physical therapist. After a few months of working with her, we started to see results from the sessions. Jack could hold his head up, roll over, and even begin to crawl. By the time he was 11 months old, he had regained his muscle strength and was already trying to walk. Since then, Jack has excelled and has achieved all his physical milestones ahead of time!
I can’t even put into words the amazing support, kindness, and patience I received as a first-time mother from Jack’s Family Resources Coordinator and his therapists. I was able to keep Jack in virtual visits since he was not yet vaccinated, which was a huge relief!
CTC helped my child get back on track, helped me with any questions I had, and became part of our family. Jack would get excited to see his therapists before appointments, and I was just as excited to share my child’s progress each time. Everyone who works at CTC are truly heroes in my eyes! They work with children and parents during a scary and trying time with such grace and love. Jack is now almost 2 and a half years old and graduated last week from the Early Supports for Infants and Toddlers program. It’s bittersweet to be done with the program but I’m so proud of my child’s accomplishments. I couldn’t have gotten through the past two years without the guidance and determination of his therapy team. I am so thankful to have been a part of this program. CTC offers a beautiful service to children. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
