For over 20 years, CPT has provided one-on-one therapy services to support the motor, sensory, and communication needs of children. If your child has difficulty sitting still, mastering handwriting, speaking/understanding language, enjoying large group activities, or is bothered by sensory stimuli (clothing, food textures, certain noises, getting hands dirty), CPT can help both child and family! Sessions are play-based to the extent that children do not even realize they are participating in therapy. If your child struggles with typical everyday activities, call us. We participate with most major insurance carriers.
