Who we are
Founded by speech-language pathologist Catherine Raack-Gienger and headed by neuroscientist Dr. Angel Gray-Shah, CTS is staffed by licensed and certified occupational, physical, and speech-language therapists with a wide range of experience.
What we do
We offer individual, co-treatment, and group therapies for young people newborn to age 21 who need extra help with some aspect of their physical or cognitive development.
How we do it
At CTS, we utilize a community approach to therapy, and invite the referring doctors, parents, and siblings to work with therapists and supportive staff on treatment strategies to help bring out the best in each child.

At Community Therapy Services we believe our work is all about empowering parents and helping children succeed in all aspects of their lives, including their community school or home school, social environments, daily living tasks, play for learning, and sense of well-being. We strive to see that each and every child who comes through CTS achieves his or her very best through being given the skills necessary to lead a productive life.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank CTS for making a positive difference in so many lives, including my own.   Miss Tricia has been instrumental in my son’s well-being this year, at home and at school.  She has helped him improve his attention and focus and has introduced many strategies we can use to address his sensory needs.  We have seen marked improvement in his attitude toward school and his self-esteem due to her efforts and knowledge sharing.  We are extremely appreciative.  I truly do not know how we would have managed without her assistance and guidance.

My kids and I just love everyone at CTS! Always smiling and always interested in what the kids have to say. They always take the time to chat with the kids and make them feel important.
