School Based Physical Therapy 101

Tips and Resources For the School Based Physical Therapist

This FREE course was designed to be a place where school based physical therapists can come to gather all of the resources that they need. This course is very helpful for new therapists but can also be an excellent resource for seasoned therapists.

When I started in the field of school based therapy I had so many questions and difficulty gathering information on becoming a school based therapist. This course is an organzation of the materials and resources I have collected over the years so that other school based therapists have a place they can turn to!
