Therapies in the School Conference

November 15-16, 2018 - Sheraton Framingham Hotel, MA

If you are a new grad, new to working in the school setting, or a seasoned therapist you will want to join us at this year’s annual school-based conference.

This year’s conference will focus on best practices in the school setting to help you make service decisions for children from pre-school through high school. Morning sessions focus on Mindfulness and other readiness strategies woven into the classroom, and how to train your students’ Interoception skills to assist with self-regulation, language, social participation, and emotional wellbeing. Choose among sessions such as the art of the IEP, developing and assisting writing skills, how to collaborate with the team, sensory modulation, praxis, motor issues as they affect learning, as well addressing the preschooler who is not keeping up. Recent grads and those who are new to working in schools are encouraged to attend the “Support for Beginning Practice: School-Based Therapy 101” afternoon workshop. Learn how to gain support for your beginning practice, navigate school-based therapy, and network and connect with fellow therapists in a small group setting.

Renowned speakers include: Judith Kimball PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Kim Wiggins OTR/L, Kelly Mahler MS, OTR/L, and returning by popular demand: Anne Buckley Reen, OTR, RYT, Susan Cecere, PT, MHS, Jenn Colebourn MSPT, DPT and Julie Goff, MSPT, DPT.
