Over twenty five years of experience as a physical therapist, eighteen of which as a school based pediatric physical therapist.
Developmentally appropriate physical therapy instruction to children with special needs such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, developmental disabilities and autism. Gross motor instruction is always paired with language, learning the alphabet, colors, patterns, and/or numbers for a total learning experience. By combining movement with learning, young children retain more of which they are taught. Physical therapy instruction that involves play and following the child's lead and interests always yields the best results.
