    What does R.T.P. stand for?

    I came across this acronym while reading Yoga for the Special Child by Sonia Sumar. There is a testimonial by a cerebral palsy patient's therapist. And it says this therapist is "Kathryn T. Broecker, R.T.P., M.S. / Director of Physical Therapy, Richmond Cerebral Palsy Center".

    I suppose both R.T.P and M.S. are related to her profession and I guess M.S. stands for Master of Science (please correct me if I'm wrong). But I can't figure out what R.T.P stands for. I searched meanings of R.T.P in medical category(see here:https://www.allacronyms.com/_medical/RTP), but the results didn't seem to fit the context.

    I'd like to know what this acronym stands for in this context. Does anybody have an idea?

    Re: What does R.T.P. stand for?

    If you search for "R.T.P therapy" you will probably get many results like this:
    http://www.rtpphysicaltherapy.com/

    However, if this is the answer, the letters really don't belong after a name like this (traditionally).
    You'll generally get a better search result if you add some other word that can guide Google to where to look.

    Note that RTP (or R.T.P.) is an initialism — not an acronym. [link]
