• Physical therapy at The Vanguard School takes place in our state-of-the-art clinic, throughout the campus, in the community and off-campus work sites as needed. Activities are designed to build the skills needed for meaningful and beneficial movement as well as to integrate students into the community. Flexibility, balance, coordination, posture, strength and endurance are developed to enable the student to participate successfully in educational programs and activities. Therapy goals are integrated into the curriculum and individualized to meet the strengths and needs of each student. PT programs are coordinated with teachers and other specialists, working closely with the adaptive physical education program and PACE to develop gross motor skills and lifetime leisure interests.
