National Physical Therapy Month
The American Physical Therapy Association celebrates National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) in October. Members of the APTA and the general public can utilize their website (www.apta.org) to learn more about the unique services Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants provide and to educate themselves about current health issues. To celebrate NPTM, our Physical Therapy staff is encouraging CTC families to get outside and work together to promote gross motor activities. Raking and bagging leaves is a perfect way to provide strengthening and endurance activities for our students and a perfect way to introduce chores to help out the family. For our younger students, a pile of leaves can be a way to provide a fun sensory experience while our older students can feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.
