Just a quick note to share that Duke University's Doctor of Physical Therapy Division has a new program that will offer an extension of physical therapy services to kids with motor development and/or movement issues.

Services are provided by physical therapy students under the supervision of licensed faculty. They shouldn't replace, but should be an addition to an existing physical therapy regimen.

The Movement Matters Pediatrics Program, for kids ages 2 to 18, is in its first year. The plan is to operate it yearly as part of a course offered to students in Duke's Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, a highly selective, three-year, accredited program supported by leading faculty, clinicians and researchers.

The goal of the Movement Matters program is to provide care for kids and hands-on experiences for the students. To learn more, contact Mysha Sissine at 919-681-7691 at the Doctor of Physical Therapy Division.
