There are seven special interest groups within the Academy which include Assistive Technology/Seating & Wheeled Mobility, Stroke, Balance and Falls, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Degenerative Diseases, and Vestibular Rehabilitation. These special interest groups provide a forum to discuss advances in practice and the challenges of patient care within these specialty areas.
Members of the Academy can join any of the special interest groups (SIGs). These SIGs were developed to provide an avenue for networking with physical therapists expressing the same clinical interests. The Academy offers programming and publications to all members.
Members who are signed on the mailing lists of the SIGs also receive publications and information about programming specific to the SIGs. Only members of the Academy can join.
