Physical Therapy Consultation


Consultation is provided to the staff working with a student presenting physical challenges for which there is need of additional input regarding diagnosis, intervention or management.

The MISD Physical Therapist assists the local school district by providing:

  • Observation of the referral student in multiple settings.
  • Discussion with the staff of intervention strategies and procedures


As determined by the therapist and the referring district.

Referral Procedures:

A Form 2 Referral Packet is sent to the MISD Support and Related Services. The service requested on the referral is “Consultation, Physical Therapy”.

The following documents should be enclosed with the referral:
     Current Eligibility Report(s)
     Current IEP
     Current REED Report(s)
     Physical Therapy Pre-Referral Form

Referral Response:

The therapist contacts the staff person listed as the contact person on the referral to develop a specific service plan. After staff consultation and observation, possible alternatives are discussed and recommendations are developed. A follow up review is scheduled.


A written report of observation and recommendations is written.


If the need is staff related, perhaps a request for general information on specific classroom accommodations can be made and will not involve the student or parent directly.
