School therapists are in the news a lot in recent weeks and months. While this may seem like a good thing, a lot of it is due to finger-pointing.

It’s time to get ready for the 2018 professional conference season. Schedules are out and the timing is perfect to submit requests to your district and schools. This is the time of year that they are beginning to work on the budgets for the upcoming school year. Check with your administrators to see what funding is available for different professional development opportunities. If they are not able to fund a trip or conference nearby, ask if there are grant writers who are able to look for money which may be available from that direction.

Schedules for the 2017 professional conferences have been released. The timing is great, since this is usually when budget requests are due to schools and districts. This is the time of year when the administrators will be working on their 2017-2018 budgets. Many schools offer teachers and therapists money toward financing trips to these conferences if they submit specific forms ahead of time. Check with your district to see what the protocol is so you do not miss out if it is an option. If they are not available, your school might have a grant writer who could help and find grants for this type of professional development trip.
