Physical therapy and the physical therapist’s role in educational settings have evolved along with educational reforms. More recently therapists, school administrators and teachers are searching for service models relevant to educational environments and curriculum. Parents, students, and school personnel seek collaboration, mutual decision-making, and inclusion of students with their peers as much as possible. However, the education and training for physical therapists covers services in many settings such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools. Training includes assisting people of all ages, using diverse therapy approaches.
