School Based Physical Therapy Interventions

Here is an informative paper entitled Review of Selected Physical Therapy Interventions for School Age Children with Disabilities written by Susan K. Effgen and Irene R. McEwen. It is a 35 page document that includes a review of research for the different interventions that school based physical therapists utilize. The goal of the paper is to:

"identify: (a) effective physical therapy procedural interventions that lead to positive outcomes for children (3-21 years) with disabilities in schools; and (b) gaps in the evidence and areas requiring further research".

You can view the document here or below.

Excellent resource, Margaret! Don't even need to open it as I know and respect both Effgen and McEwen. They write the book, indeed, on school based practice. Barbara
