• Physical Therapy Services (PT)

    Physical therapy services are provided to enhance the educational program and encourage optimum independence of students with physical disabilities in both special education and regular environments. Direct monitoring and consultation services address a variety of student needs: functional motor skills within the school setting, safe mobility, use of adaptive/assistive equipment, positioning for optimal learning, proper transfer techniques, selected activities of daily living as appropriate to the educational program, accessibility to programs and environment and transition needs when moving to a new school.

    The physical therapists and physical therapy assistants work as an integral part of the education team and are able to function as a liaison between the medical and educational communities. In the educational setting, intervention strategies are diversified to meet the identified goals and objectives of the IEP and/or the Physical Therapy Intervention Plan.
