ATRI® and the Jalkanen Foundation offer full and partial scholarships for education in aquatic therapy or rehab at the National Aquatic Therapy Conferences. According to the ATRI® website, scholarships are given to aquatic therapy practitioners who, for some reason, would not be able to attain needed continuing education in order to stay in the field of aquatic therapy and rehabilitation. This may be due to special needs, being single parents, having experienced physical or emotional trauma, or other special circumstances. The scholarships will help practitioners get education so they can continue to serve others.

September 18-21, ATRI® will be in Washington, DC. The Featured Course is “Tackling the Lower Leg and Foot: Rehab for our Functional Foundation.” Additional courses include:

  • Intro to Aquatic Therapy and Rehab
  • Beyond the Basics of Ortho
  • Hip and Back Specialty Certificate Program
  • Ai Chi Certification
  • Equipment for Post-Op Patients
  • Aquatic Warrior Specialized Programming
  • Complex Shoulder Solutions
