Community and Home Therapeutic Services (CHTS)


The Groden Center’s CHTS Department supports children and adolesents with developmental disabilities by partnering with families to provide effective therapeutic services and learning opportunities to promote greater independence. We provide home, community and clinic-based services to individuals with ASD and other developmental delays.

All our programs are founded on the philosophy that there are significant benefits to children and adolescents when their families are active participants in their educational and therapeutic programs.

Referral and Intake Process

Parents & guardians may contact CHTS at The Groden Center directly for ABA, HBTS, PASS and or EOS referrals.

A telephone interview will be conducted between a member of our staff and the family to determine if the services offered are covered and if they will meet the family and child’s needs.

Once it is determined that the program is appropriate, the Clinical Team will meet with the family to identify appropriate goals for the Treatment Plan. CHTS prepares the Treatment Plan and submits it with supporting documentation to the funding agency for approval. Once approved, and staff are identified, services will begin.

School Departments, Private Schools and Agencies may contact CHTS at The Groden Center directly for School Consult services.

DCYF makes all referrals for our PFEP program.
