Children's Therapy Center
October 26, 2010

My son was turning one when we were referred to CTC (Kent). On initial meeting with feeding and physical therapists my fear and anxiety were eased by honest and realistic reassurance by them. They did not tell me something like "He will be ok" statement but they both reassured me that me and my family are not alone in figuring out and helping my son's shortcomings. Eventually, my son was diagnosed with severe global developmental delay. Recently he started having seizures. He is now 6 1/2 years old and we are still getting therapy from the center. To add, not long after my son was going to CTC, I gave birth to his younger brother who turned out to have intractable seizures and developmental delay. His younger brother is now 5 years old. He continues to be a "CTC kid". CTC has been very supportive and instrumental in bringing sanity and hope to our family. From the front desk and on, the employees have been cordial, understanding and family centered. CTC is equivalent to our medical home. CTC is warm and welcoming, just like home. They have been always family centered and has been acquiring ways to serve a broader community of families with disability or developmental issues. CTC is true to their mission. CTC is determined to reach out to the community. The staff have been working beyond what I have expected. We have a very difficult situation, we have two disabled children but we are standing where we are right now because CTC has held our hands and continue to take this journey alongside our family.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My children are attaining what they could to the fullest. We've had short therapies aside from CTC but they were not as family centered and disability friendly as CTC.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grant them more fundings (if I had the money) so that they could continue updating their efficiency through education, state-of-the-art facility, hire more therapists needed by the community.
