Physical therapists work with families and the educational team to develop goals to address various functional activities that help students access their education. Students are seen individually, in a group setting, or through consultation. These sessions may focus on functional mobility, strength, endurance, positioning, use of adaptive equipment, bracing, and environmental adaptations. Physical therapists work collaboratively with other special education and related services providers to support carryover of skills across environments, with an effective balance of challenging levels throughout the day and week. A broad array of resources and equipment are employed, mindful of the importance of fun, including yoga groups, for meaningful engagement and motivation.
