Physical Therapist

The Physical Therapist evaluates and provides support to students who need instruction in gross motor control, basic mobility, and balance.  The Physical Therapist advises staff in understanding the student's physical capabilities and limitations.  Physical therapy may include assisting a student with the use of adaptive equipment or instructing staff as to the safest way to lift or transfer a student.  Physical therapy requires a prescription from a physician.  Physical therapy gives a student increased support to achieve motor goals related to educational tasks within the classroom environment.
