Physical Therapy (PT) is focused on any problems with movement that cause functional limitations.
Children with autism, Asperger's, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, and other physical difficulties frequently have challenges with motor skills such as sitting, walking, running or jumping.
Physical therapy can address poor muscle tone, balance and coordination. A physical therapist will start by evaluating the developmental level and abilities of the child. Once they identify the individual’s challenges, the physical therapists design activities that target those areas.
Physical therapy might include assisted movement, various forms of exercise, and use of orthopedic equipment.
Physical therapy is usually delivered in 30 minute to one hour sessions by a licensed physical therapist, with the frequency determined by the needs of the child.
