Pediatric Physical Therapy COVID-19 Resources

We have 3 great resources to support school based physical therapy practice in Virginia:

  • 4 School Base Practitioners, who are Academy of Pediatric PT members have created this site. Here you will find information on school practice, and resources. If you have resources to share, there is a place to do that on this website as well. Lets source our information to support each other!
  • The Virginia Occupational and Physical Therapy website is a collaboration of VPTA and VOTA members, organized by Patricia Laverdure, OTD, OTD and has information to support school based school practice. The website can be found here.
  • The Academy of Pediatric PT has a link in a banner to COVID related content here. If you are an Academy Member you can access the Forums and interact with other PT colleagues regarding concerns.
The APTA Virginia Pediatric SIG will be hosting educational sessions to support school based practice, on an as needed basis. If you're a member and have marked "pediatric" as your primary clinical focus in your member profile (prior to March 21) then you will receive an email invitation to these. Other's may recieve the email by sending an email to with the following information:
