School can be tough and that’s okay! Sometimes we need some extra help. CTC has just the thing.

 The UP! Tutoring Program is a special offering by Comprehensive Therapy Center. We help students K-6 with IEPs unleash their full potential.

This program combines movement, tutoring, and therapies into one. Students will get help with not only academics, but movement and social skills as well. We also provide speech and occupational therapy based on the needs of your child.

 At CTC, we believe learning should be fun!  Our tutors have decades of experience working with children with special learning needs. They’ve teamed up with our dance/movement, occupational and speech therapists to create a program that is engaging and enjoyable for your child.

UP! is open to students grades K-6 with IEPs or other special learning needs. The program starts the first week of October and is six weeks long. Stay tuned for registration dates!

Tutoring will be virtual only. If you feel your child would learn better face-to-face, please contact us! We understand that every child is different and want to set them up for success in a way that works for them.
