Through the Developmental Disabilities (DD) Services Program your child may be eligible to receive services addressing daily living skill development, positive behavior skill development, improved social relationships, and family training.

Great relationships between a child/family and therapist can make all the difference.   At CTP, our DDA supervisors take a special interest in meeting families to learn how to best support their child, and then we assign the best therapist.  Carefully considering the best provider for our individualized Habilitative Intervention and Habilitative Support services gives our clients the opportunity to build meaningful relationships and achieve success.   

Our staff goes the extra mile coordinating weekly social activities, including trips to the Boise Zoo and Discovery Center.  More importantly, we work together with families and our onsite physical, occupational, speech therapy and counseling team are available to provide comprehensive services to help our clients reach their goals.

At CTP, you don’t have to worry about arranging transportation for DDA services, as all of our therapists have had a driving record check and are able to transport your child to and from home, school, and various places in the community.
