Relationship of Student Outcomes to School-Based Physical Therapy Services

Grants and Contracts Details


The proposed prospective multi-site observational study will describe accurately the outcomes that students achieve when receiving physical therapy within schools and the relationship of the physical therapy intervention to those outcomes. Knowing relationships between student outcomes and physical therapy intervention, as currently provided in schools, will influence physical therapy practice, fUture research, and professional development. Our research objectives are to describe the changes in students' participation in school activity, self- care, posture and mobility, and recreation and fitness outcomes and the relationships of these changes to identified characteristics of school-based physical therapy intervention, including service delivery models, activities, procedures, and dosage.
