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 problems.


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, traumatic stress, 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 total care.
