Special Services

At CHA, you or your child will work one-on-one with an experienced therapist. You will get a custom treatment plan and measure progress along the way, using standardized tests as a guide.

You will find the latest treatment techniques, including LSVT for patients with neurological conditions like Parkinson's Disease.

For Children:

  • Our Speech and Language team works closely with schools in Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Everett, Malden and beyond. When your child gets services here, we will keep your child’s school in the loop on progress. If needed, we will tell the school about any extra services your child needs to succeed.
  • Group therapy to help children work on communication skills.
