Welcome Message: Welcome to Physical Therapy with Mr. Brian
Hello PT parents & students!
First & foremost, I hope that all of my students and their families are safe and well!
I understand how overwhelming and confusing this time is and my hope is that I can offer some guidance and strategies to make it a little easier for all of my students. I truly miss seeing and working with each and every one of them!
Starting this Friday April 3rd, I will slowly be adding resources, strategies, and activities to keep my students moving, catching, improving their balance and having fun in their teachers google classroom. Keep in mind that this will be constantly evolving as I will continue to have access to more digital resources and training in the days to come. If you have questions or need guidance that is specific to your child’s PT needs, I can be reached via email: Brian.firstname.lastname@example.org I will be checking this email periodically throughout the week and will respond as soon as I am able.
I will be availablevia email during the school week to answer questions and concerns as promptly as possible.
Please check out my teacher website for general PT information, resources, and activity suggestions: https://www.wappingersschools.org/Page/15996
Again, I am here to help! Stay well!!

slouching. Upright posture helps muscles work more
