The primary role of a physical therapist is to provide care to those children with physical functional problems related to injuries or other conditions. The care administered by you as a physical therapist is fundamental to promoting mobility in these children and improving their quality of life. Using your clinical expertise, the child will be observed and evaluated in order to diagnose specific physical or developmental delay. After a diagnosis is made, a plan of care is created which will utilize a variety of techniques in order to promote mobility.
Physical Therapy and Early Intervention
The most important years for physical growth in children are birth to age three. Brain development is most critical during these years, so a developmentally-delayed child benefits the most from early intervention as soon as possible.
Sunny Days provides home-based physical therapy to children in need of early intervention. As a Physical Therapist at Sunny Days, you should expect to:
Communicate with other Sunny Days staff members to identify other areas for improvement
Communicate with the parents and/or caregivers of each child to incorporate strategies into their daily routines
Provide instruction to each child demonstrating the techniques established in the plan of care
Educate parents on reinforcement and early intervention information
Provide the necessary recommendations for additional treatment
