The PT assesses and treats the areas of strength, range of motion, balance, positioning, walking, or wheelchair mobility. The PT also identifies special equipment that the individual can use and teaches them how to use it. If an individual uses a wheelchair, they may teach them to assemble and use it properly.

A screening of hearing acuity is also sometimes performed in the initial assessment. A Speech-Language Pathologist evaluates and treats challenges in the areas of speech production, language expression, comprehension, reading, writing, and even swallowing.

Adaptive devices maybe recommended by the OT to help the individual achieve the maximum level of independence. OTs often works with other therapists on feeding and swallowing programs.
