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!
