Physical Therapists


Physical Therapy as an educational support service, focuses on removing barriers from the student's ability to learn. It helps students develop skills, which increase their independence in the school environment, and improves students' performance in school classrooms, hallways, playground, physical education and other areas that may be part of their educational program. The physical therapist works to help students function better in classrooms, the lunch room, or restrooms and may work with school personnel on adapting or modifying their seating and other equipment/materials. Therapists work in a supportive role, working closely with teachers, to promote the highest level of function possible for students pursuing educational goals.
