Children's Research Triangle (CRT) is dedicated to the healthy development of children and their families. CRT provides services in a friendly, personalized, family-centered atmosphere in downtown Chicago. We also work in the community with our partners, including schools and social service agencies. We help children who have a variety of challenges including Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), developmental delays, school difficulties, behavioral and emotional concerns, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, prenatal drug exposure, and a history of childhood stress and trauma. With the support and generosity of our donors and partners, we are committed to providing needed services regardless of a family's ability to pay.
Our work with children and families has many facets. We offer Evaluation and Treatment for a variety of developmental, educational, emotional, and behavioral concerns. We assist parents in the process of making decisions regarding adoption, we host support groups to bring people together to share successes and challenges, and we provide a Speakers Bureau to share our expertise among parents and professionals. Our Research Department allows us to expand evidence-based treatment and ensure that our work is informed by the most up-to-date information. As a result, our clinical programs are recognized as national models for successful interventions. In addition, since 2000, Camp SOAR (Special Outdoor Adaptive Recreation) has allowed children with special needs to create lifetime memories at our overnight camps.
The work of Children's Research Triangle began in 1976, when a group of volunteers came together to serve families and children who faced an array of challenges. In 1998, CRT was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization as we continued to expand our services. 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, fulfilled lives.
Children's Research Triangle, a 501(c)(3) organization, FEIN #36-4236142, is an independent not-for-profit organization responsible for its own funding and governance.
