- serving as an expert, a source of knowledge for parents, families, school staff, and students
- supporting students as they strive to meet curriculum standards and increase motor development skills
- developing and implementing individualized treatment plans for students
- advocating for students, ensuring that all accommodations and supports are provided
- collaborating with teachers and other specialists to help students succeed
- acting as an advisor for school communities, guiding all stakeholders to assist students across various educational programs
Our remote school physical therapist jobs give you the exciting opportunity to make a meaningful impact on students, families, and schools.
How to Get a Telehealth Physical Therapy Job
Online physical therapist job requirements are the same as for an in-person physical therapist. You will need to have an undergraduate degree, usually with an emphasis in science, such as biology, anatomy, or physiology. You must also earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree, typically taking three years to complete. Finally, you must pass the National Physical Therapy Examination to become licensed in your state.
Many physical therapists enhance their livelihoods by entering into a residency or fellowship program to gain valuable experience and boost their knowledge and skills. Board-certified specialization is yet another option for therapists looking to expand their career horizons.Read Less
