Physical Therapy (PT)

Physical Therapy provides therapy services for children who qualify for special education services, ages 3 to 21 years. Areas addressed by PT as a related service may include gross motor development skills, mobility, adaptive equipment, positioning needs and other functional skills and concerns which interfere with the student's ability to perform at school, promote improved functional independence and/or to assist with the implementation of appropriate adaptive equipment and/or accommodations. PT as a related, special education service is NOT intended to satisfy all of the student's medical needs which may be related to the diagnosis, and can not "stand alone" as a special education service.
