image Many children admitted to the school have disability, delays or differences in many areas -- including gross and fine motor skills. Children may have low muscle tone, or have a tough time with coordination and sports. These issues can interfere with basic day-to-day functioning -- and they're almost certain to interfere with social and physical development. Physiotherapists help the children affected by these disorders through exercise, manual therapy, training and advice.
