ECHO TIES

Professional Development to Support Oregon Therapists

Purpose:

To provide equitable access to best-practice knowledge through professional development, forums of collaboration and a supported learning community to OT and PT and those who work with them who are supporting children with orthopedic impairments and other motor challenges to improve district and student outcomes.

ECHO Therapy in Educational Settings sessions will be held the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 8:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. PST. No registration required.

Each session begins with a 45 minute presentation with Q&A time, followed by a case study/didactic of an unidentified student. Contact us if you would like to present a case.
