Pediatric SIG

The Pediatric Special Interest Group (PSIG) of the Colorado Chapter of the APTA is a group of Colorado Physical Therapists who share a passion for working with children and their families.  We have a common interest in providing effective, evidenced-based pediatric physical therapy services and promoting the interests of our membership, the Colorado Chapter, and the American Physical Therapy Association.  

Our Objectives:

1.  Promote high quality physical therapy service delivery for children with disabilities in Colorado through research, education, and information based on evidence and clinical expertise across practice settings.
2.  Encourage, foster, gather, and disseminate research related to effective physical therapy intervention across pediatric settings.
3. Provide a forum for communication among pediatric physical therapy clinicians, academicians, and researchers across the states and in various practice settings.
