The California Children's Services Medical Therapy Program provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and medical therapy conference services for children who have handicapping conditions, generally due to neurological or musculoskeletal disorders.  

Physical Therapists are responsible for planning and performing physical therapy  for neurologically  and  physically impaired  clients at California Children's Services Medical Therapy Unit sites, which are located in local public schools. Incumbents are primarily responsible for providing rehabilitative therapy focused on gross motor activities to clients who are physically or neurologically impaired by illness, injury, or genetic impairment. Incumbents may assist clients by developing or improving physical skills; restoring muscle function; maintaining maximum performance within the client's capabilities; and improving the level of self-care and productivity.
