My name is Wendy Wallace and I’m a Physical Therapist with the Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU).

Education/ Work Experience:
I graduated from Thomas Jefferson University and have been a physical therapist for 30 years. I’ve worked in acute care, outpatient rehab and sports medicine and pediatrics. I've worked for the Capital Area Intermediate Unit since 1997. I work with preschool, elementary, middle school and high school students in multiple schools and settings in Dauphin County. During summer breaks I work in Outpatient Clinics.

What is Physical Therapy in the School Setting?
School-based Physical Therapy supports the educational programing of the student and therefore does not replace outpatient Physical Therapy. In the school environment, I work with students on positioning, mobility and equipment needs related to school. I work as part of the team working with the child during the school year. The best way to contact me is via email.
