The PPTA Pediatric Special Interest Group is a state-wide volunteer organization that brings together any member of the Pennsylvania Chapter (PTs and PTAs) in good standing who share an interest in the evidence-based care of the pediatric population.

Benefits of membership include peer-to-peer networking, providing a forum for education in Pediatric practice, and to identify and promote utilization of standards of competency for practice, research, and education in Pediatric practice.
