We Celebrate Our Team

Congratulations and Farewell

Our amazing team comes together as we celebrate commitment, dedication and passion.

ERI Team













Our small but mighty team are the reason ERI was able to weather the storm of Covid-19. Without them we could not have successfully pivoted many of our courses onto the virtual platform to continue to provide quality education for therapists globally.

We celebrated Donna, who has been with ERI for over 25 yrs. She coordinates ERI’s accounting activities and is a great resource for course participants. She has witnessed  so many changes and updates over the years, and is always willing to help and roll up her sleeves. Thank you Donna!

We said a fond farewell to Cathy, our marketing coordinator. Cathy’s vision has helped to take our marketing department to the next level. We will miss you and wish you every success in your new venture.

While we were unable to be together in person we had a great fun time at our virtual paint party. There’s some talent there!!

Here’s to the another time soon – hopefully in person!

Kati Knudesn

Kati Knudsen

Kati Knudsen has practiced as a pediatric physical therapist since 1996 and as a therapist in the NICU since 1999. Kati is lead therapist for two NICUs at sister hospitals in Portland, Oregon. She has obtained certifications in neonatal therapy, pediatric physical therapy, lactation education, neurodevelopmental treatment, infant massage, developmental care, and transportation of children with special needs in order to better support infants and families. Kati has published articles about support for preterm and medically fragile infants and has spoken nationally and internationally on care of infants in the NICU. Kati serves as the therapy representative on the Vermont Oxford Network Multidisciplinary Advisory Council and is a founding member and past co-chair of the Neonatal Therapy Certification Board. Kati also sees patients in NICU follow-up clinic where she has helped to redesign care to make it more accessible to families.


Premature and Medically Complex Neonates: Applying Critical Thinking to Support Long-term Outcomes

Her dynamic and collaborative
advanced NICU therapy course Premature and Medically Complex Neonates: Applying Critical Thinking to Support Long-term Outcomes will enable clinicians to apply strategies to support infants with extreme prematurity, complex neurological diagnoses, and in utero substance exposure using advanced problem-solving techniques. Modification of developmental and family-integrated practices to meet the needs of medically-complex infants will be discussed. Therapists will learn specific neuroprotective and neuropromotive strategies to support small babies in the NICU. Methods will be provided to support infants beyond the NICU through identification of follow up concerns, options for long-term support, and family integration to promote parent advocacy. Additionally, tools will be provided to support an expanded role of therapy in the NICU by establishing the benefits of strong developmental perspective, focus on long-term outcomes, increased role of therapists from admission through discharge, and team collaboration. Finally, clinicians will be able to identify and implement quality improvement techniques to better assist neonates and define and improve therapeutic outcomes.

Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize three strategies to support infants with extreme prematurity, complex neurological diagnoses, and in utero substance exposure using advanced problem-solving techniques.
  • Apply at least two neuroprotective and neuropromotive strategies to support complex patients in the NICU.
  • Determine a novel method to support infants beyond the NICU through identification of follow-up concerns, options for long-term support, and family integration to promote parent advocacy.
  • Recommend a way to increase therapists’ presence or therapeutic practices in the NICU, using the cases provided.
  • Determine a quality improvement technique to better assist neonates and therapeuticnicu outcomes.

Don’t miss these opportunities to hear Kati speak!

Josephine Bardabelias Joins ERI Faculty, Offers NEW Live Webinar

Josephine Bardabelias, PT, brings her 30+ years of experience treating children in various settings to ERI in 2022!  Don’t miss her NEW course:  A Developmental Approach to Motor Learning: Tools to Enhance Academic Skills Through Movement.

February 22, 24, March 1 and 3, 2022
6:10 pm EST • 5:10pm CST • 4:10 pm MST • 3:10 pm PST (US)

Exercise strengthens the body and brain! Research continually demonstrates the importance of movement regarding cognitive skills.  As therapists working in pediatric settings, we have the ability to impact these skills through the use of purposeful, fun and creative therapy sessions. 

This NEW, 4-day live webinar will present innovative ways to integrate movement with learning while concentrating on developmental and functional concepts.  Applying this approach to neuroanatomy, we will identify structures that can be impacted during our treatment sessions, resulting in more enriched activities.  We will explore sensory and motor systems from primitive reflexes to executive functioning while discussing their impact on focusing, memory and overall learning.  Using evidenced based research, brain breaks, videos, group discussions, and break-out sessions, therapists will acquire a unique and “moving” way to utilize these tools the very next day.

Happy Holidays from ERI

The past two years have taught us many lessons, including that anything is possible when we come together. Here at ERI, we are dedicated to our mission of offering world-class, exceptional learning for PTs, OTs, SLPs, and assistants. We are therapists just like you, and we know that finding new effective ways to treat patients is a top priority. Through hard work and perseverance with our faculty, staff, and the loyalty of our many participants, we held close to 140 live webinars in 2021. Our virtual annual Therapies in the School Conference welcomed school-based therapists from across the country. The camaraderie we witnessed this year between therapists and faculty was truly inspiring and we are grateful for our community.

Throughout 2022, ERI will continue to offer live CEU webinars, with many new faculty members and topics and we plan to offer in-person courses when possible.

We’ll also continue to grow our catalog of online, on-demand courses which provide the opportunity for individuals around the globe to learn the latest therapeutic techniques from world-renowned faculty members. We remain hopeful as we enter the new year, and while we don’t know all the challenges ahead, we know that together we will succeed in continuing to improve our practice and the lives of individuals seeking therapeutic care.

Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy and successful new year,
