The Medical Therapy Program (MTP) is a coordinated program of medically necessary Physical Therapy (PT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) services provided to medically eligible children. These services are provided in Medical Therapy Units (MTUs) located at certain public schools.
PT and OT may help your child to be independent in such areas as getting around, getting in and out of a wheelchair, walking, feeding, dressing, grooming and home skills.
There is a separate evaluation by the Medical Therapy team to determine if your child would benefit from MTU services and to determine which services would best meet your child's needs.
