Physical Therapy Programs

faculty and student setting up a physical therapy session

The Physical Therapy Department at Gateway School is dedicated to addressing performance skills where a child’s disability impacts or compromises their ability to physically access, participate or make progress in their natural learning environment.
 

Our Physical Therapy program goals and highlights:

  • Functional mobility skills addressed, as they relate to the school environment
  • Training in gross motor coordination skills
  • Balance and strength training included with development of follow-up in-class programs
  • Orthopedic concerns are an area of focus
  • Consultation and collaboration with students’ medical doctors as needed
  • Home exercise programs as well as parent training
