Hi there, welcome! The physical therapist may target age appropriate gross motor skills like jumping. He or she may also target the underlying components or difficulties in strength, balance, and coordination. It’s not so much the diagnosis of the child that determines the course of treatment, but rather the underlying deficits that are affecting the child’s functioning.
