HCPSS MPIA Request #2018-320

Requested Information
I know the school system has early intervention and in-school programs, so I thought I would get really good estimates of the need for pediatric physical therapy services from HCPSS data.
If possible, I would love data on
-how many children birth through grade 5 receive physical therapy services
-breakdown by primary disabilities (or reason for PT if the data gets that specific)
-breakdown by region/school/ or school district (if available)
-breakdown by age
Response Notes

No existing report contains physical therapy services by disability type or age. Additionally, while physical therapy services are provided for infants and toddlers, no existing reports identify counts by type of service as HCPSS Special Education uses a primary provider model.

Responsive Documents
An available report on physical therapy services by grade and school. Please note, this report contains the number (Count) of students with required physical therapy, along with an estimate of total staff time (Hrs) needed to meet requirements for the current week. HCPSS has made substantial efforts to ensure the accuracy of this information; however, data collection and reporting is consistently subject to change. Please be mindful when comparing data as many variances can occur between reports based on date pulled, parameters used, categories included, etc.
