Physical Therapy

School-based physical therapy is a related service provided in the school setting. The purpose of physical therapy is to improve a student’s functional performance during the school day, including orientation, mobility, and gross motor movements.

Physical therapists use therapeutic activities that may improve a student’s ability to physically access their environment. Our therapists assess the following areas: postural control, balance, strength/stability, motor control, coordination, endurance, gross motor skills and functional mobility. This may include consultation or environmental adaptations in addition to direct service.

Students who have physical therapy at Churchville-Chili Central School District typically have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Accommodation Plan.  A prescription from the child’s medical doctor is required to provide these services.
