This was my first year attending the Therapies in School Conference and it was such an informative and incredible experience, despite being online. Honestly the online format is what helped me attend this year, and has me looking forward to continued workshops with ERI and to keep eventual in-person opportunities on my radar. The presenters did great at translating their topics into a virtual format and still providing opportunities for engagement, participation, small groups, and discussion. It was challenging to pick afternoon sessions, because many of the topics were of interest or applicable to my practice and caseload. The team really made the most of this odd year, and I’m glad I made the decision to attend the full, 2-day experience.

This conference never let’s me down and even with having to navigate a “virtual” conference, I still learned so much and got a chance to interact and collaborate with others in the field. Fabulous conference!
