The pediatric physical therapist is responsible for providing safe and effective delivery of patient care
through assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of patient and family needs within the
parameters of the Illinois Physical Therapy Practice Act in order to deliver care promoting optimal recovery
and rehabilitation. The physical therapist promotes safe and effective care to all age groups from infants to
geriatrics, coordinating care with the physician and any others involved in the patient's care. The physical
therapist will provide care throughout the continuum and rotate through the various therapy sites as needed.
