Independent Summer Learning

Christa Tober, M.S., OTR


Last week, a friend casually remarked about the gradual shortening of days now that the summer solstice has passed.  I thought to myself “How could this be?  Wasn’t it just April last week?” After the initial shock subsided, I decided this might be a good time for some re-orientation exercises such as reviewing what has happened the first half of the year, sharing some exciting updates, and taking a look at what is to come.

Mid-Year Recap

We have held several great webinar series already this year beginning with a series on Family Quality of Life, followed by a series on Splinting, another on Balance and Postural Control in the Elderly, and finally a series on Assistive Technology in School-based Practice.  If you missed any of these series, the video recordings are available in our library and are even compatible with your mobile device - perfect for outdoor summertime learning or independent learning while traveling!

New Live Webinar Connectivity & Time

We are excited to announce that all of our live webinars are now mobile compatible with the Adobe Connect App! Grab your iPad and head outside to enjoy the summer weather - and earn your CEUs! To better meet busy work schedules, we also changed our Monday live webinar time to 3 pm EDT.

Upcoming Series

Check out these great series in July, August and September.


I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and have a fun and safe Fourth of July!

Cheers!
