The aim of physiotherapy is to:
An evaluation is performed by a licensed physical therapist and an individualized treatment plan of care is developed. In addition to addressing a child's physical wellbeing, therapists take into consideration the psychological, social and environmental factors that affect them. Parental involvement in the physical therapy process is highly encouraged and recommended. The therapists consult with parents on an ongoing basis in regards to their child’s progress. Parental training in the techniques used in therapy can improve a child’s overall success and allow the child to practice skills learned in therapy outside the treatment sessions.
