Annual Therapies in the School

Course Description:

Please also indicate your Day Two Lunchtime Discussion Selections

Year after year, therapists practicing in a school setting gather at our annual conference to learn new innovations, research, evidence and practical tools to improve the lives of the children they serve. Whether new to practice or having worked in a school setting for many years, they anticipate reconnecting with colleagues and meeting new friends who share their passion. 

This year’s topics include cutting-edge sessions including:
  • helping children prepare their brains and bodies for learning 
  • utilizing neurological approaches to improve self-regulation 
  • effectively implementing a trauma-informed approach 
  • strategies for building effective groups 
  • fostering internal motivation in students 
  • facilitating improved postural control 
  • rethinking progress in the severely involved child.

    Join the ERI community that fosters therapists building connections, sharing ideas, and actively learning. We hope to see you at this year’s conference. Limited Availability so Reserve Early!

What Past Participants are saying:

I have attended several Therapies in the School Conferences during my professional career. Each one has been unique, but all share one factor; they all have the same effect on me - to reignite the passion that I have to learn about the field of speech-language pathology and school-based therapies, the nuances of working in an educational environment, the latest in cutting-edge research, pedagogy. - Alyson Marcello, SLP

Excellent! I am a new PT in the school setting. Gave me great strategies to connect with all of my kids (pre-school-high school) Thanks! - Elizabeth Welch, PT

I look forward to hearing the latest updates in therapy on an annual basis. A great opportunity for networking. - Gail Miller, OT

It is great to come to a conference where the focus is on schools!  Thanks for the energy and variety of relevant topics - Britt Doyle, OT

I'm so glad I came to this conference - you always do a great job of presenting very critical information by highly qualified professionals. The RTI info was so pertinent, inspiring, and timing so critical to classrooms today where we are presenting intensive rapid instruction with kids whose systems are just not ready. I will go back to work inspired with new energy and enthusiasm around how to help out in our schools.-Kathy Murray, OT

This course was excellent. I have been treating for eleven years and this course gave me a renewed passion for my job. The information was very pertinent and new for the field. It was great for any school therapists. It's nice to have a course designed for the job I do! Kathryn Biel, PT

ERI brings together very qualified speakers. They organize a good conference with great facilities in order to provide a comfortable learning environment. I would not hesitate to attend a course with ERI in the future.- Susan McCartney

This was a fantastic way to hear information directly related to my work in the schools. Having the ability to hear about up and coming methods/philosophies and practical strategies to implement right away with my caseload was awesome! I cannot wait to come back and hear more in the future!- Britt Doyle

The Therapies in the School Conference is consistently one of the best year to year. Not only are the speakers and topics up to date, the facilities are well thought out.-Kathy Niedfeldt
