School Based Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy Services Overview: 

Physical therapy as an educational support service can be quite different from physical therapy in a hospital or clinic. School-based therapists focus on assisting students to acquire the functional abilities necessary to access educational materials and adapt to their educational environment. They may help students with daily activities related to educational participation, adapt the performance context, teach alternative methods, or facilitate the use of assistive devices. Physical therapists in schools work with other educational professionals, members of the community and families to help all students engage in their educational activities. This collaboration is also the foundation for promoting the participation of students with disabilities in the general educational environment. These guidelines suggest service delivery models that increase the capacity of schools to meet the needs of all children.  

This is in accordance per Connecticut Physical Therapy in Educational Setting 
Guidelines.  For more information please visit the following link:
