Developing, restoring, and preserving physical function and mobility
Physical Therapy (PT) services focus on developing, restoring, and preserving physical function and mobility. PT services are provided by a licensed physical therapist or a licensed and supervised physical therapy assistant. PT services are provided at no charge through our private funding resources for children under the age of three.
PT services may include direct one-on-one therapy in the child’s educational environment, collaboration with staff, modification and adaptation of the student’s physical environment, and staff trainings, as well as communication and collaboration with families, physicians, equipment vendors, and outside agencies. In the Infant & Toddler Program, the child’s need for PT is determined by their Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) after an initial PT evaluation is completed. Frequency and duration are determined by the family and the IFSP team.
