    Physical Therapy in the Educational Setting
     
    The role of physical therapists is not to develop PT goals, but rather to participate in the collaborative development of a student's educational goals with the other members of the IEP Team.  Therefore, the process of achieving goals must be shared among those working with the students and may include therapists, teachers, parents, paraprofessionals, and others. 
     
    Intervention can include adaptive activities within the student's daily routine, developing opportunities for the student to practice new motor skills, positioning, monitoring of adaptive equipment and problem solving with others to encourage motor development and independence.
     
    Therapy time may consist of:  consultation/observation
                                                 equipment adaptations
                                                 direct hands-on intervention
