Carrie Kane, PT, DPT
I am excited to be joining the team at Vermont Physical Therapy and offer care to pediatric patients. I come to this role with 8 years of pediatric physical therapy experience in a variety of settings, including outpatient care, early intervention services, school settings, and adaptive recreation. I have provided therapy to children and their families in their home, community, schools, and clinics.
I am experienced and comfortable working with pediatric patients from birth through to their transition to adulthood. I treat patients with a wide range of diagnoses, including autism, developmental delay, neurodevelopmental disorders, genetic disorders, and orthopedic conditions. I can evaluate a child for equipment needs and work with a family to order equipment that a child needs to function and be an active participant in their community. I have additional training in aquatic therapy and possess a Certificate in Aquatic Physical Therapy Clinical Competency.
My philosophy of pediatric care encompasses treating the child as part of the whole family system, having fun as much as possible, and prioritizing those skills a child needs to participate in play activities with other kids. When a child is able to play, they are learning and moving, and that is the ultimate goal!
I have been living in beautiful Vermont for 2 years. I initially moved with my husband to be closer to his family, but we have found that we love Vermont more and more all the time – from the beautiful mountains to the strong sense of community. When I’m not spending my time having fun with kids at work, I love to spend as much time outside as possible. I volunteer with Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports in both summer and winter programs.
