All Kinds of News for April 11, 2018
During the first week of April, Asheville NC was the hub for a lot of activities focused on the therapeutic industry. The week began with the Autism Symposium, followed by the Therapeutic Consulting Association (TCA), and wrapped up with the Wilderness Symposium. Summit Prep was represented at 2 of the three conferences.
During the Autism Conference, participants were treated to two great keynotes by Danny Raede, CEO of Asperger Experts and Nancy Tarshis, a speech and language pathologist. Both shared pertinent and helpful information. The remainder of the conference was filled with practical breakouts and energized discussions.
The Wilderness Symposium takes on a more experiential feel. Participants had the opportunity to make a drum, trek around the area, do yoga, ride a zipline, as well as listen to some engaging speakers. At this conference there is a celebration titled The Jumping Mouse Ceremony, which highlights the work and dedication of the front line staff. During the diversity training and key note by Dante Bryant, MA, participants learned about next steps in making the world a more inclusive arena.
The wealth of knowledge that is shared at these conferences was amazing. People have time to connect and reflect on the various sessions.
