This Years theme:

Early Intervention/Lifetime Success: How DT is More than Birth to Three

We are excited to have Kate Swenson author of Forever Boy as our keynote speaker presenting "Finding Joy in the Secret of Autism". There will also be time for a meet and greet with Kate, and she will have her book available for purchase, as well as signing!

Our morning session will also consist of Cami Stevenson presenting "Early Intervention Through Collaborative Consultation to Children's Classroom"  where, as stated in her bio "participants will learn how to provide effective collaborative consultation to children's preschool classrooms.  By the end of this workshop, participants will have gained the skills to foster supportive relationships and work collaboratively with caregivers to create an inclusive and enriching environment for all."

Our afternoon panel discussion titled "Bon Voyage and Smooth Sailing- Steps DTs can take for Transition and beyond promises to be engaging and informative!

Join us as we expand our knowledge of what we as developmental therapists can do to facilitate meaningful interactions for our EI families as they navigate their world around them . So mark your calendars, book your hotel room, and prepare for a fun and knowledge filled day among your fellow Developmental Therapists.
