As the year is coming to a close, and the office is now a little quieter, after our crazy fall season, we are reminiscing and looking back at yet another exciting year.
A year that introduced 7 new leading faculty members to our distinguished line up of dynamic international speakers, bringing our community of therapists more evidence based, dynamic and engaging CEU courses. Courses that provided in-depth material focusing on: Toe Walking, The Neurologic Upper Extremity, Amputee Rehab., Post Concussion Syndrome and TBI, Adult Dysphagia, NICU Developmental Intervention, or Connective Tissue Mobilization in Pediatrics, adding to and complementing our established well respected course offerings.
We were VERY excited to expand our unique program of online courses, launching 6 new school based courses in February, adding to our highly regarded resources for therapists practicing in the school setting. In June we were very proud to launch our Series of Vestibular Rehab online courses taught by internationally renowned expert Richard Clendaniel.Whether blended with a live course or taken as a stand alone all our online courses are proving to be popular and well received.
Watch this space; we are busy proofing and editing new videos to add to our library in the new year!
Something for EVERY therapist!
Our new blogger series with PT, Kathyrn Biel, was launched and received with great enthusiasm. It is a great venue for any therapist to share clinical problems, challenges, breakthroughs and ideas. Kathryn was able to meet many of you at our Annual Conference in November.
Our sold out annual Schools Conference; Therapies in the School held in November in MA, proved to be one of the best yet! Therapists from all over the country heard the best of the best and came away invigorated on returning to school on Monday morning! We from the Education Resources team certainly enjoyed reconnecting with many therapists returning from previous years and enjoyed meeting so many new participants. Thank you to all for making this year’s conference such an outstanding success.
We have expanded our “in-house” training to offer staff development training to acute care hospitals, rehab and community settings and school districts.
This year also saw some changes in the office.
We welcomed a beautiful new baby boy and grandbaby, much to the excitement of all of us! We said a sad farewell to Kathy as she retired to enjoy traveling. We cannot thank her enough for her dedication, passion and the happiest personality. She will be missed!
We do extend a warm welcome to Denise, who will be working closely with our faculty members to plan their travel and help them develop their syllabi. She brings a dynamic personality and dedicated spirit to our ERI “family”.
As we move into 2016, we have many new, exciting opportunities to share with you: new speakers, new topics, and new initiatives.
Look for “Infants Born Preterm: Identifying and Addressing Their Special Needs in Early Infancy to Support Development” a new course from Jan McElroy. A new course from new faculty member Roberta Pineda, an NDT course from Gail Ritchie and a mealtime success course from our new speaker: Susan Roberts. Look for Megan Donaldson’s newly developed course: “An Evidence Based Lumbopelvic Examination and Treatment”.
For the first time we are thrilled to add a pre-conference to out Therapies in the School Conference in November; “The Zones of Regulation” with Leah Kuypers. Register early for this one!!
And we are still in December!!
We will continue to develop and customize more great courses for you throughout 2016. As always, please reach out to us with your thoughts and ideas.
Wishing you health and happiness in 2016, from us all at Education Resources.
