    1. Hi, Michelle.

      We held a GREAT splinting course with two awesome therapists at the Samuel Merritt University Department of Occupational Therapy last spring. Perhaps it’s time for another? Let me check in with our therapy leaders. If the interest is there among our therapists, we will look into getting another one set up. Thank you for reaching out through EnsignTherapy.com. I’ll keep in touch regarding the possibility of another course sometime in the near future. Deb Bielek, Therapy Resource
