Physical therapist Scottie Taylor receives Janet S. Munt Award

We join the chorus of those celebrating the work of our own Scottie Taylor, pediatric rehabilitation physical therapist, who received the Janet S. Munt Prevention Award at KidSafe Collaborative‘s 32nd Outstanding Service Awards ceremony last week.

The Janet S. Munt Prevention Award is presented to “an individual working to promote prevention/early intervention services to strengthen families, prevent child maltreatment and improve the health, safety and well-being of children and youth.”

Colleagues and families acknowledged Scottie’s important work with local children over Scottie’s nearly 10 years with Home Health & Hospice.

“From infancy through adolescence, children in Chittenden County have benefitted from Scottie’s knowledge and heart,” Scottie’s nomination read. “Scottie supports a child’s physical goals — positioning, equipment, strength, etc., with exceptional clinical skill, but just as importantly, Scottie also supports a family’s goals. By partnering with parents and caregivers, Scottie supports the whole child. They recognize that families are as much our clients as the children themselves. Scottie approaches children and adults with respect, compassion and open-mindedness. We are fortunate to have them as a colleague and friend.”

Scottie was nominated by the parent of a child with whom Scottie has worked for some time. Scottie’s supervisor Rebecca Grimm and colleague Megan Seidner provided letters of support in the nomination process.

Scottie’s award is one of six given annually by KidSafe. More photos from the socially-distanced event can be found here.

Please join us in saying congratulations, Scottie! We’re so lucky to have you on our team!
