Why spend your CE dollars on theoretical information you already know or short webinars that don’t provide enough information to change your practice skills? You will learn new information and practice new skills at the RAIR Symposium.
2. Top Instructors
RAIR Symposium speakers have years of clinical and teaching experience, are often internationally renowned, and frequently have publications and research to their credit. They offer extensive clinical perspectives from their own practical and often very original work. You will have the opportunity to interact with speakers while getting questions answered and engaging in timely discussions.
Chosen for their timeliness and applicability to pediatric treatment by OTs, PTs and SLPs, this year’s RAIR Symposium sessions offer a broad range of topics including sensory processing treatment, body work, clinical reasoning, school based intervention, and more. Whether you’re an OT, PT, SLP, parent, educator, or nurse, there is an interesting, treatment-based session for you. This is especially valuable for multidisciplinary teams since topics address issues in a variety of fields applicable to more than one profession.
4. Practical, Hands on Content
The RAIR Symposium is unique in that sessions are more in-depth to cover essential information (minimum length – 1 day) and many are designed to support opportunities to implement the information with instructor assistance. You will leave with greater confidence to put the information into practice on Monday.
No matter whether you’re new to your field or have years of experience under your belt, there is a learning experience at the RAIR Symposium that will enhance your treatment skills. Sessions cover a range of content levels, so that participants can expand their knowledge on multiple levels.
6. Networking Opportunities
The RAIR Symposium draws professionals from around the country, particularly the mid-west. You will have the opportunity to network with others in similar or unique settings, discuss practice issues, and trade ideas, resources and information face to face. Many past participants have made valuable and lasting connections at the RAIR Symposium.
Of course you need continuing education to maintain your licensure, but you’ll want CE that’s going to augment your career and service delivery skills. The knowledge and skills gained by participating in the RAIR Symposium will be yours for the rest of your career. That’s the value of attending.
8. Incredible Value for the Cost
Speaking of value, we know that CE funding is limited, so we keep the tuition fees as low as possible, while maintaining high quality presentations. In many cases the fees are lower than the general market and competitive with web-based courses.
9. Buffet Lunch Included
Here’s something you don’t get at other courses – a delicious buffet lunch is included with your registration fee! You choose what you eat and how much from a nice selection of dishes provided. It’s the perfect way to relax from the stimulating morning course information and network or process new ideas with colleagues. There’s no rushing to a restaurant to grab a quick meal and return to find parking in time to get back to your course. This worry-free benefit optimizes your learning.
10. Mid-winter Blahs
