Physical Therapist (PT)
West Springfield, MA, USA Req #17728
The May Center Home, School, and Center Based Program in Western Massachusetts is currently accepting resumes for part-time Physical Therapist based out of our West Springfield office to provide direct services for our Early Intervention program.
This is a part time position (20-25 hrs) with a flexible Monday-Friday schedule!
Early Intervention is a program funded through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) that provides supports to children from birth to age 3. A child may be eligible for services if s/he has a developmental delay. This could mean that he or she is not saying many words; not sitting, crawling or walking when expected; has a diagnosed disability such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, or autism; and/or lives in an environment that would put him or her at risk for developing delays.
What sets us apart:
services are direct which allows for flexibility for the specialist to spend time on what the child and family needs most each week.
Services are held wherever the child is during the day (home, daycare, relative's home,etc)
Sessions involve the family as a unit; therefore, all outcomes are family driven
Write and train parents and other team members on programs allowing children to receive lots of practice
An environment of collaboration and support between all team members to best support the children we serve
