My child does not have a condition or a formal diagnosis, can they still come to the center?
Yes, even if your child has no formal diagnosis or condition and you think they would benefit from therapy they can attend for an assessment of their needs. Our therapists will assess your child and give recommendations of treatment that may be needed.
What age do you see children until?
We see children until the age of 18, from there adults will be seen by our adult therapy team. However this does not mean that a child cannot stay within CERC past the age of 18 if thought beneficial for their therapy.
