CTS LLC private practice was established in 2016 with a mission to help children live their best lives!! Our owner Tyrice Cartwrights' late parents, William and Frankie Jean Douglas were always caring for children. They had 5 children of their own, raised several neices and nephews, and adopted 4 more children later in life. CTS LLC has grown to provide skilled services for the pediatric population in the Northwest Mississippi/Delta Area and the Greater Shelby County Memphis Metro region.

CTS skilled therapists also partner with directors and teachers at daycares and preschools and various school systems to assist children in optimizing their best potential while in the classroom.

We truly enjoy the uniqueness in every child and enjoy seeing a parents’ excitement with each goal mastered.

We are always available for any questions that you may have about your child and willing to help in any way that we can.

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapy helps children promote and gain more independence by helping to strengthen the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual motor skills that children need to function, socialize, and grow to be a functional independent adult.

Occupational Therapist help with developing:

  • Cognitive skills– remembering the names/formation of letters, shapes and sequences.

  • Fine motor skills– finger dexterity, wrist and forearm control, and hand strength.

  • Gross motor skills– balance and body coordination.

  • Self-care tasks– dressing, bathing and self-feeding.

  • Social skills– taking turns, listening and following directions.

  • Sensory Integration- helping with sensitivity to noise, touch/textures, taste, and visual stimuli.

Occupational Therapy helps with functional tasks such as:

  • Moving arms and hands freely to play with toys.

  • Holding a crayon.

  • Drawing or scribbling.

  • Dressing (managing zippers, buttons, snaps, shoe laces)

  • Trying new foods. (picky eater)

Speech Therapy

Pediatric Speech and Language therapy helps children improve their verbal and/or non-verbal communication skills. Speech and Language Pathologists (SLP's) work with children who exhibit speech or language disorders, such as developmental receptive/expressive language delays, social communication, articulation, stuttering, and feeding.

Speech and Language Pathologists help with:

  • Increasing the understanding of verbal language used by caregivers and peers.

  • Improving the ability to express wants, needs, and thoughts in multiple modalities. (words, sign language, communication device, etc.)

  • Teaching children with social delays how to interact more appropriately with peers in social settings.

  • Improving speech sound production skills so that a child can be better understood by communicative partners.

  • Evaluating the need for specialized equipment, such as speech-generating devices or adaptive feeding materials.
