October is National Physical Therapy Month, and an opportunity for Great Prairie AEA to celebrate and recognize our physical therapists and physical therapy assistants for the work they do with children birth to 21 in our area.
Great Prairie AEA’s Physical Therapy program provides therapeutic services to maximize children’s functional motor abilities through assessment, intervention, advocacy and education related to their unique needs with the educational atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation. Physical therapists design interventions that improve a student’s physical ability to access and participate in their educational program.
Physical Therapy Month is sponsored through the American Physical Therapy Association and is celebrated nationally. For more information see http://www.apta.org/NPTM/
Thank you to our Physical Therapists (PT) and Physical Therapy Assistants (PTA):
