Continuing Education

Improve the Care and Future of Children with Special Needs

The Children's Therapy Unit has a long history of providing continuing education for parents, care providers, therapists, teachers and other school personnel. We strive to offer continuing education opportunities that will ultimately improve the care and future of children with special needs.

The impact of our continuing professional education courses is far-reaching. Two courses (Clinical Decision Making and SEMG) have been presented throughout this country and internationally as far away as Australia. Routinely offered course topics include:

  • Adaptive switches and control devices
  • Creative adaptive equipment solutions
  • Eight-week certification course in neurodevelopmental therapy
