The Physical Therapy program helps a child achieve maximum independence through task oriented training, exercises, neurodevelopment and sensory integration, positioning, alignment and environmental adaptations.

At NIARC, our Physical therapists work with a wide spectrum of differently abled children. The Physiotherapist who works one to one with your child will get to know them through play before commencing any formal therapy. We believe in developing a trusting relationship between the child, the parent and the therapist in order to maximise the therapeutic outcome.
