A Look Back at 2023 – ERI’s Year in Review

Goodbye 2023…Hello 2024!

2023 was a whirlwind of a year! As busy as it was, we always like to take some time to pause and reflect on the many exciting things that happened over this past year. Here’s a fun recap of what’s happened, what’s new and what’s to come…

ERI worked hard to bring you over 120 live webinars, including over a dozen in-person courses. We were able to grow our on-demand library by adding 7 new on-demand courses, not including the many on-demand sessions from our Therapies in the School Conference of 2022 that were repurposed to an online format. Plans are already well underway to bring you even more on-demand learning opportunities in the new year. 

Our Team Continues to Grow

We added new faculty members and new topics to our ever-growing course list, and provided our therapists with the most up-to-date and relevant educational content. Speaking of adding new members, we are thrilled to welcome our newest ERI team member, Joann Sorg, who will be serving as the Assistant Director of Continuing Education. Joann is a seasoned occupational therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience in various settings from early intervention to adult transitions. We’re so excited to have her aboard!

A Record-Breaking Conference

At this year’s Therapies in the School 24th Annual Conference in November, we had record-breaking attendance – over 500 therapists (from 30 different states and parts of Canada) in virtual attendance on Zoom! It was an inspiring two days of exceptional educational content for our school-based therapists to take back to the classroom. On top of the passion and expertise our speakers brought to the conference, there was also a great deal of dialogue and interaction happening among the attendees. We loved watching all of the connections taking place throughout the conference and beyond by utilizing the Whova app. Even though it was a virtual event, being able to communicate in real-time and have those back-and-forth conversations made it feel as if we were all together. We’re already working on next year’s conference – save the date for November 14 and 15, 2024.

Exciting Things On The Horizon

birth to three early intervention pediatric therapistsWhile Therapies in the School has always been our signature conference, we’ve been hard at work putting together a brand NEW conference to meet the needs of therapists serving the birth to three population. As we look ahead to the new year, we’re excited to announce our inaugural Birth to Three Conference scheduled for April 4 and 5, 2024. This virtual conference is geared towards OTs, PTs, SLPs, Special Educators, Assistants and more who work in a variety of pediatric settings including early intervention, hospital inpatient and outpatient, outpatient private practice, rehab, home care, or specialty clinic and want to advance their hands-on skills and strategies when treating the birth to 3 population. Be sure to check out our agenda and speakers and reserve your spot at what’s sure to be a fantastic event!

Thanks For The Memories 2023…

Looking back on this past year, ERI would like to thank our hardworking and committed faculty, staff and the loyalty of our many participants who have continued learning with us over the years. We’ve already started working on big things for 2024 and can’t wait to share them with you. It’s going to be another great year!

Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy and successful New Year.
