Your COVID-19 Questions Answered

Dear ERI Community:

The last year has been uncertain and difficult. We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.

We are a small business owned by two therapists and are working hard to make sure you receive the high-quality continuing education you trust us to provide, while also trying to mitigate the impact on our staff as we navigate these unprecedented times. As many of you know, we are a family business and many of our staff  – our extended family – have been working with us for more than 10 years. We are based in Massachusetts so are operating from home to comply with the safety precautions, and appreciate your patience as we work to provide you updates as quickly as possible.

The safety and health of our community – our course participants, faculty, facility partners, and staff – are our top priority. We have made the hard decision to postpone our live in-person courses at  until we know it is safe and responsible to resume them. We are however now able to offer many of these courses as live  virtual webinars. 

As healthcare workers, many physical, occupational and speech language therapists are finding themselves serving on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here at ERI, we know firsthand the instrumental roles therapists play in our healthcare system and are dedicated to arming them with the information they need to treat and care for critically ill patients, and traumatized students.
