Welcome to the Association of Educational Therapists

Association of Educational Therapists (AET) is made up of a wide range of professionals who are dedicated to helping people of all ages reach their full potential.

If you're a parent or potential client, simply click on the orange quick access portal to connect with an educational therapist (ET) who will work with you and your family to identify your student's unique needs. Our professionals collaborate closely with families and educators to support all students in reaching their full potential.

To my fellow practitioners, elevate your career with AET’s certification programs and specialized training for professionals. Through these certifications, you will gain insights into the various levels of professionalism offered within AET and be afforded the opportunity to collaborate with others in our profession. AET offers a wide range of learning opportunities to support your professional growth and development. Join us for hands-on workshops in different cities and interactive webinars online covering a wide range of subjects. Our Annual Conference is a platform where industry-leading speakers share their expertise and inspire us to grow professionally. Don't forget to check out our Events Calendar, which is regularly updated with upcoming webinars, workshops, Association meetings (most of which are open to all members) and information about our Annual Conference.

AET is committed to providing you with the best resources, whether you are a student or an experienced therapist. The goal of AET is to make a positive impact on society by promoting the field of educational therapy on a global scale, and setting high ethical standards for educational therapy practice.  The AET certifications and training will help you achieve these professional goals.

If you're interested in becoming more involved, be sure to explore our different committees or attend our quarterly board meeting, held virtually.

Thank you for taking the time to visit AET, we look forward to working with you!
