Current Phase: Safer at Home

Current Covid Phase

To Our Families, Friends, and Supporters:

CTC is committed to serving clients throughout the pandemic. Our speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, dance movement therapy, and a range of other programs are available over telehealth and in-person. Our team will work with you to find the best fit for your family.

Our current opening phase is: Safer at Home.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • A therapist will talk to you on the phone before you schedule your evaluation. You will decide together whether in-person or telehealth services are best for your family at this time.
  • Our tech lending library is available for individuals who want to use telehealth services.
  • In-Person therapy takes place in well-ventilated rooms with plenty of time between sessions for sanitation and ventilation.
  • Our waiting rooms are one-family-at-a-time.
  • Everyone who enters the clinic must follow a temperature and symptom check and follow standard safety precautions: wear a mass, wash or sanitize your hands, and maintain social distance.
  • If you aren’t feeling well or you have symptoms, stay home. There is no penalty for canceling or re-scheduling services during the pandemic.

If you have questions or want to schedule an appointment, please call (616) 559-1054 or email info@therapycenter.org.
