Physical Therapy (PT)

Children must meet various physical demands during the school day to be successful from both an educational and a social point of view. They use important motor skills to move within the school premises, sit at a desk through an activity and participate with peers in the playground.

The Physical Therapist plays an important role in facilitating the development of these motor skills to allow for optimal participation and socialization for every student.

The Primary focus of the Physical Therapist is the rehabilitation and treatment of physical disorders that affect functional ability, general mobility, and potential movement, all of which can improve quality of life for the students. The areas dealt with are:

  • Gross Motor Functioning
  • Muscle Tone
  • Balance
  • Joint Range of Motion
  • Fundamental Motor Skills
  • Endurance and Agility
