School based PT and OT services

Pediatric Therapy Assoc., Inc. has been a provider of quality physical therapy and occupational therapy services for more than 20 years. We currently contract to provide PT and or OT services to 15 schools and Early Intervention programs. Although many of these systems are in the Greater Birmingham area, we also work with many rural school programs. In these settings our therapists provide PT/OT to students who meet the special education and 504 guidelines for service. Our staff assesses students, develops goals and program plans with the teachers and school staff, and provides both direct and consultative therapy service to the student, school staff, and family. The providers of service with whom we frequently consult include Children’s Rehabilitation Service, Children’s Hospital, Early Intervention Programs, physicians and therapists, and vendors for adaptive equipment, wheelchairs and orthotics. The students we serve in these schools often come to us for outpatient services. Our staff members are knowledgeable about national and state guidelines concerning the provision of school-based therapy services and they stay current through regular updates on all related issues.
