MOBILITY SKILLS

Increased independence and confidence in mobility is the object of this  class.  The students have the opportunity to develop muscle strength, joint flexibility and activity endurance.  Also emphasized are:  improved balance, posture practice, increased awareness of the body in space, progressive ambulation practice, and walking up and down stairs.  Transitions from bed to chair to sitting with balanced weight bearing will be practiced for those in wheelchairs.  Ambulatory students  will receive reinforcement of techniques or adaptations as learned previously in therapy.  Increased independence is attained through group and individual instruction.
