This year’s conference will deliver the same quality you’ve come to love and expect in a highly interactive virtual experience.  If you couldn’t join us in the past because distance was prohibitive, this is YOUR CHANCE to JOIN this AMAZING COMMUNITY of school-based therapists!

If you are a physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist or special educator working in an educational environment, add November 16 and 17, 2023 to your calendar.

ERI Therapies in the School brings the very best speakers to share the very latest research and school-based therapy techniques—and their passion for their work—with hundreds of school-based therapy professionals just like you.

Energetic experiential learning, lively panel discussions, and challenging breakout sessions will give you powerful new therapeutic tools and techniques.

ERI Therapies in the School builds a therapy community across the country that stays in touch long after the conference closes.

Our annual conference also starts a conversation that continues all year with school discussion groups. Powerful professional development for school-based professionals is a key part of the ERI mission, and school discussion groups provide a forum for therapists and educators to ask questions and share insights online.

There’s a reason why over 50% of conference attendees come back for another year. See for yourself how the ERI Therapies in the School conference can change the way you feel about your work—for the better.
