In the dynamic and ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, being part of a professional community is invaluable. The National Association of Rehabilitation Providers and Agencies (NARA) stands out as a beacon for therapy providers and ancillary support organizations across local, regional, and national levels. As a NARA member, individuals and organizations find themselves on a journey of growth, community building, and collaborative advocacy.

Tailored Memberships and Exclusive Benefits 

NARA recognizes the diverse needs of its members, offering tailored memberships for therapy providers and associates alike. This inclusive approach ensures that everyone, from individual practitioners to larger organizations, can access benefits specifically designed to enhance their professional journey. 

Promoting Growth Across Disciplines 

NARA takes a proactive stance in promoting growth for its members, especially in the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Through robust support and advocacy initiatives, members receive the tools and resources needed to navigate the evolving healthcare landscape. This not only benefits individual practitioners but also contributes to the overall advancement of rehabilitation services. 

Building a Supportive Community 

Being a part of NARA means joining a community of rehabilitation providers dedicated to helping each other succeed. The exchange of insights, experiences, and best practices creates a collaborative environment where members can address challenges, share successes, and learn from one another. This sense of community fosters a spirit of unity and resilience within the rehabilitation industry. 

Strategic Partnerships with Professional Associations 

NARA understands the importance of collaboration at a broader level and works closely with influential organizations such as the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). By fostering strong partnerships, we ensure that the unique contributions of each discipline are acknowledged and advocated for on a national scale.

We provide our members with exclusive access to national conferences, webinars, collaborative calls (including Town Halls and Special Interest Group calls), as well as timely updates from Capitol Hill. These opportunities not only keep our members updated on industry trends but also provide a platform for networking and professional development.
