What is your area of expertise? How does your personal and professional experience relate to your Learning Master role? As a doctor of physical therapy, I work with children who have physical disabilities. I evaluate and consult with children and their families to develop goals, to overcome musculoskeletal impairments, and to increase function in their daily lives. We work on posture, strengthening, and mobility. Perseverance is necessary as progress is often slow; however, successes are celebrated with great joy! Together, we problem solve ways to expand their child’s participation in the community.
