School Based Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy is a related service within a child's special education program or 504 plan.  In order to receive school based PT, a student must first be identified with a primary special education disability determination or require a 504 plan. PT is a supportive service available to those students with an IEP or 504 plan demonstrating a gross motor impairment that significantly restricts or prevents a child from physically performing in the educational environment. Impairments may include functional mobility (walking on levels or stairs, opening school doors), balance and safety, motor control, motor learning, strength, flexibility, and endurance.  Physical Therapists help students,  parents, and staff with physical assessment, consultation, classroom accommodation recommendations, and direct service delivery through school based Physical Therapy programs
