"School-based occupational therapy practitioners support academic achievement and social participation by promoting occupation within all school routines, including recess, classroom, and cafeteria time. They help children fulfill their role as students and prepare them for college, career, and community integration. They utilize prevention, promotion, and intervention strategies for mental and physical health and well-being." From www.aota.org
"Physical therapists work with individuals with childhood onset conditions across their lifespan who are experiencing illnesses, injuries, or conditions that limit their ability to move or function in their daily life. They provide services aimed to improve mobility, develop or restore function, alleviate pain, prevent or decrease permanent physical disabilities, and promote overall health and wellness."
