Important Session Information:

The evaluation plays an essential part of physical therapy. Evaluations establish the framework for therapy. The evaluation results are the foundation for generating the individual's goals, designing customized interventions to improve the individual's ability to perform daily activities, reach the goals and ensures that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

PTs play key roles in school settings. PTs have important roles in evaluation and treatment for those individuals afflicted with disabilities that may limit the individual's ability to interact, engage and participate in activities throughout their school day. It is imperative that school based PTs are knowledgeable of a variety of tests and measures available for this practice setting to perform comprehensive evaluations of the individual in the school enviornment, make recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use and guidance and education for family members and caregivers.

3 Hours of PT CEUs available.
