As we emerge from the COVID 19 pandemic, we are re-imagining what participation and performance will look like for school-aged children and how our support today impacts each student’s long-term outcomes in life. 

At this year’s conference, we are excited to join together to deliver content that integrates what we have learned during COVID with our pre-COVID best practices.

(This outline is subject to slight change)

We know that we need to look at the WHOLE child and consider areas that may have been overlooked or addressed less frequently in the past; the vestibular system, visual system, social/emotional (anxiety) impacts, breathing and more.  In addition, we are re-thinking and updating those areas we regularly address with children such as fine/gross motor skills and sensory processing and evaluations. 

We look forward to sharing this new knowledge and the excitement of being a school-based therapist as we emerge from this time of COVID with a renewed commitment to and enthusiasm for the children we support.
