Over 300 school-based therapists from around the country attended the Fourteenth Annual Therapies in the School live conference in Framingham, Massachusetts. Once again, this sold out event proved to be a thought-provoking and inspiring conference that provided therapists with the latest evidence-based therapy practices.
Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists expressed overwhelmingly positive feedback about the strategies they learned to use in their everyday practice. Britt Doyle, OT, shared, "This conference is a fantastic way to hear information directly related to my work in the schools. Having the ability to hear about up and coming methods, philosophies, and practical strategies to implement right away with my caseload was awesome! I cannot wait to come back and hear more in the future!"
Kathryn Biel, PT, shared, "This annual course is excellent. I have been treating for 11 years and this course gave me a renewed passion for my job. The information was very pertinent and new for the field. It was great for any school therapists. It's nice to have a course designed for the job I do!"
