2019 Annual Illinois Developmental Therapy Association Conference
The IDTA is proud to announce our 4th annual conference exclusively for the developmental therapists in the field. This will be an excellent opportunity to connect with your peers, gain tips to further your practice, honor the achievements of a Developmental Therapist with the Wehman Award of Excellence and celebrate all that has been accomplished in our field.
This year's theme:
Celebrating the Uniqueness of Families in Early Intervention
Join us as we expand our knowledge of what we as developmental therapists can do to be more inclusive and respectful of the various diverse backgrounds that contribute to the family life of the children we serve.
So register today, book your hotel room and prepare for a fun and knowledge filled day among your fellow Developmental Therapists.
The 2019 IDTA Conference has been approved for up to 5.5 Hours of EI Credit.
