This year’s format enables therapists who have been prohibited by travel to participate.

“For 21 years, ERI’s Therapies in the School Conference has brought together school-based therapists and renowned, expert speakers,” said Carol Loria, President and co-founder of Education Resources, Inc. “While this year’s conference is virtual, attendees will experience the same world-class learning and leave with new therapeutic innovations, practical tools, and evidence-based research that will bring their practice to the next level.”

Speakers include Suzanne Davis Bombria, Sharon Cermak, Sue Cecere, Lauren Holahan, Lillian Savard, Angie Sterling-Orth, Colleen Whiting, Kim Wiggins, Kimberly Wynarczuk, and Emily Zeman. The conference will also include a special virtual yoga session with Anne Buckley-Reen.

This year’s topics include essential information addressing present-day circumstances including adapting school-based practices to telehealth, integrating trauma-informed treatment strategies (including COVID-19) into practice, evaluating participation, applying best practices for school-based learning, supporting students with sensory processing disorder using the STAR frame of reference, and much more.
