Physical Therapists (PTs)
work with school aged children/youth to help them move to the best of their ability and to obtain and maintain their highest level of independence within the school.
These students have physical challenges that affect success in:
- Classroom activities
- Getting around the classroom and school
- Recess play
- Physical education
If you have a student that has needs in any of these areas, try these resources:
