Aquatic Therapy

We utilize the properties of water, including buoyancy and resistance of movement, to address strength, postural control, range of motion, motor planning, breath control, and weight bearing. The water also reduces stress on the joints and helps many children with special needs achieve greater strength and endurance.

We’ve had great success extending the benefits of aquatic therapy to individuals with not just physical, but also sensory and developmental issues.  Water also provides a fun and motivating environment for therapy.

We provide aquatic therapy through collaboration with Wesley Homes in Auburn, WA.

“I volunteered at CTC’s aquatic therapy program in Kent for two years while I was doing my undergraduate work. That’s where I learned about the relationships therapists could build with families and parents. Therapists were always inviting parents to join their children in the pool for their sessions, or finding ways to involve them even if they were just watching from the side of the pool. I saw how fun it was to talk, share, and celebrate progress together.” – Amanda P, OT

each year we help over 3,000 kids

In partnership with parents and caregivers, we celebrate where each child is today and work toward who they can become.
