School physical therapy is provided to
students who display motor difficulties which impact their ability to
participate in their academic program.
Although physical therapy is a very specialized and focused discipline, students are made to feel that they are "playing" as opposed to working.
The main physical therapy area is located in room 1B which
is well equipped with mats, large therapy balls, balance beams, scooters, bolsters, wedges,
tunnels, weights, barrels, and a lot more. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful “Sensory Gym.” Located on the stage, it has overhead suspended equipment including a bolster swing, sling swing, frog swing, moon swing, platform swing and a large ball pit. Under the supervision of a trained therapist students who need this type of input are provided with its use. The hallways are well stocked with equipment such as therapeutic bikes, a pedalo, one footer scooters, and wagons. It is a child's dream!
Therapy occurs throughout the school setting in a way to
motivate and interest your child.
