j0439420If you have a preschool or school-aged child who struggles with attention, learning, social or physical delays, and have ever wondered if physical therapy might help, mark your calendar for next Wednesday evening, when the Verona non-profit Children Having Individual Learning Differences (C.H.I.L.D) will host a free workshop on the subject.

The program,  which will begin at 7  p.m. in the media center at VHS, is called  “Physical Therapy in Early Intervention Programs, School-Based Programs and the Medical Field — Understanding the Differences in Eligibility, Approaches and Treatments.”

At the workshop, Marissa Muccio, a licensed physical therapist and president of Pediatric Rehabilitation of North Jersey in Wayne, will provide detailed information regarding the differences between the Early Intervention, school-based and medical models of  physical therapy for children.  Ms. Muccio will describe how children’s needs are addressed within each model so parents can better understand the type of treatment their children might benefit from.
