Degrees and Certifications:

Kaela (Michaela) Onkka, PT, DPT

I am Kaela Onkka, one of the school physical therapists at District 6. I am responsible for all the middle, high, and charter schools, as well as transition services and Winograd K-8. I have experience working with children of all ages with various medical diagnoses ranging from cerebral palsy to Trisomy 21 to developmental delay. I have been supporting District 6 students for one year as a school PT. Additionally, I was servicing the Greeley community as an outpatient pediatric PT for two years.  I am passionate about providing skilled PT to my students in order to increase their independence and build confidence in themselves through mobility. I strive to empower them to participate with their peers. I aim to support students, teachers, and staff via consultative and direct services depending on their IEP. Feel free to reach out regarding any questions related to these students so that I may support you!
