Cynthia Cohan

Pediatric Physical Therapist, PT, DPT



Throughout my life and career, I have worked with children.  Working with children started as a babysitter and nanny while I was in high school. In college I worked as and became certified as a preschool teacher. In 1991, I graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy and in 2014 I was awarded a clinical doctorate in Physical Therapy focusing on Pediatric Science. I have worked in a variety of settings, including early intervention facilities, schools – private and public, adult day programs, aquatics, and acute care settings.  I have worked with children and adults with a variety of diagnosis and have extensive experience working with children with visual and hearing impairments.  I feel very comfortable working with children who are medically involved and children with multiple disabilities.

I enjoy working with children because I love to play and I enjoy the challenge of finding what motivates a child and using that to guide the therapy session.  In my non-working time I am a wife, parent of two boys, and an amateur water polo player. I come to ConnectEd through Janel, who I have known since first moving to California.  She is someone with whom I love to work and when the opportunity arose to work with her and the ConnectEd team, I jumped at the chance.
