California Children’s Services (CCS) is a state program for children with certain diseases or health problems. Through this program, children up to 21 can get the health care and services they need. CCS will connect you with doctors and trained health care people who know how to care for your child with special health care needs.

The Medical Therapy Program (MTP) is a special program within California Children’s Services that provides physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT) and medical therapy conference (MTC) services for children who have handicapping conditions, generally due to neurological or musculoskeletal disorders.

Some CCS programs are free. To get the CCS Medical Therapy Program, your child must be under 21 and have a medical problem that CCS covers, and be a resident of California with an adjusted gross annual family income under $40,000. Anyone such as a parent, teacher, school nurse, or physician can refer a child to CCS.
