Children's Research Triangle (CRT) is dedicated to the healthy
development of children and their families. The work of
Children's Research Triangle began in 1976, when a group of
volunteers came together to serve high-risk families and their
children. The culmination of these efforts came in 1998, when
CRT was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. Our
vision is for all children, no matter what challenges or
disabilities they may face, to have a safe and nurturing
childhood and to receive the support necessary to lead happy
and fulfilled lives.
CRT's staff is committed to our mission to provide research
driven services that improve the quality of life for all
children with special needs or those who are at risk for
developmental, behavioral, psychological or educational
Our clinical program, The Child Study Center (CSC), provides professional
services that are delivered in a friendly, personalized, family-centered
atmosphere which offers collaborative programming and support for the
children and their families. We conduct full assessments of a
child's developmental, psychological and medical needs and provide
a wide range of individualized therapeutic interventions. Many of the
children seen at Children's Research Triangle struggle with neurobehavioral
difficulties, developmental delays, behavioral, emotional or attachment
problems, educational or learning disabilities, and other conditions that
affect their quality of life.
- We also work extensively with children who are adopted or in the
foster care system and have experienced abuse, neglect and prenatal
alcohol and drug exposure. Prenatal or postnatal counseling is
available for families considering a domestic or international
adoption of a high risk child, especially children prenatally exposed
to alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines or other drugs.
- Our clinical work is driven by our Research Program, through which
we design cutting edge treatment programs. This approach offers
distinct benefits for our clinical programs, which have become
recognized as national models for the development of successful
interventions for at-risk children.
- Through our clinical and research programs we provide children and
their families with services that help them function at their very
best and live to their fullest potential, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
In addition to our clinical services, we offer Camp SOAR (Special
Outdoor Adaptive Recreation), a week long overnight camp for children with
extensive cognitive or physical special needs, including those who require
to download the current Children's Research Triangle newsletter.
