Physical Therapy

Physical therapists work with children in their homes from birth to 3 years of age who have mobility concerns, positioning needs, or delays in gross motor achievement. After age 3, services are provided in a school setting where the therapist continues to address mobility, positioning, and access in the school environment.

The physical therapist works closely with the family and school personnel to maximize the functional abilities of the child. Service delivery options range from consultation and training with the student’s educational team to direct service provision with the student. In addition, physical therapists work with students and schools to obtain the necessary mobility and positioning equipment to allow for maximized independence and learning.
