Pennsylvania Rehabilitation Association

Pennsylvania Rehabilitation Association
State Chapter of the National Rehabilitation Association


PRA is committed to bringing learning opportunities to our members.  We realize that not only must our members stay up-to-date on the legal and ethical aspects of their rehabilitation careers, they must also be connected to other professionals that have been creative and successful with varying approaches of service delivery.

PRA hosts a statewide conference entitled the Professional Development Institute every spring in the Harrisburg area.  This year the Board is excited to offer, in partnership with the George Washington University, free regional training programs on hot topics in the field.
