Physical Therapy Services

Licensed physical therapists in Kent ISD's special education department help students with special needs achieve the goals of their IEP (Individualized Education Program). They help plan the IEPs and work with students to improve motor skills and mobility. They also teach students to use therapy equipment correctly and to the best advantage.

An evaluation process determines if physical therapy is included in a student's IEP. Services are provided free for students who qualify in any public, charter or parochial school within Kent ISD. All of Kent ISD's physical therapists are licensed by the state of Michigan. They require a yearly prescription signed by a doctor to work with a student.

Contact your district's special education department if you know a student whose education would benefit from physical therapy services.
