Take Action: Improve Access to Disabled Parking Permits
Physical therapists hold clinical doctorates and are experts in human movement. They treat many individuals with disabilities — permanent or temporary — who qualify for state parking permits.
But surprisingly, Florida's physical therapists cannot determine a patient's need for such a permit.
Legislation pending in the Florida Legislature would correct this by allowing PTs to help patients with disabilities access the disabled parking permits they need. Under this legislation, Floridians in PT programs would benefit from not having to seek disabled parking permits from another medical provider, potentially saving time and money. Instead, they could get access to a from their PT, with whom they have an existing relationship.
Please take a moment to contact your state legislators and urge them to support this legislative change (House Bill 343 / Senate Bill 688). It only takes a quick moment to make a difference!
