2024 Birth to Three Conference

ERI is excited to launch our first annual conference for the community of therapists working with the birth to three population. We will deliver the same quality you’ve come to love from ERI. 

Our first of a series of planned annual events brings the very best speakers to share the very latest research and therapy techniques—and their passion for their work—with hundreds of therapy professionals just like you.

Energetic experiential learning, lively panel discussions, and challenging breakout sessions will give you powerful new therapeutic tools and techniques.

ERI understands the value and positive impact a strong foundation can provide in the birth to three population. Through our evidence-based content, therapists can enhance infant and toddler development supporting the whole child and their family.
Some of the conference highlights include:

  • Learn easy to implement strategies that will foster a child’s inner connection, or interoception.
  • Examine why handling can be an important intervention for core development.
  • Integrate adaptive equipment using a theoretical framework to guide your evaluation.
  • Drive better outcomes in communication and feeding skills with oral structure and functional development.
  • Utilize a multi-disciplinary approach for treating children with torticollis.
  • Implement neuroaffirming and neurodiverse practices 
  • Navigate withdrawal and implement interventions when dealing with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.
  • Integrate primitive reflexes in the maturing nervous system.
  • Identify red flags of childhood apraxia of speech and develop a customized treatment plan.
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing and implement sleep wellness practices.
