Welcome to our website!
Whether you are an AET member, or someone who is visiting us for the first time, I hope you will find the site full of interesting and helpful information. As an organization, AET encourages the highest professional standards for educational therapists, and supports them in their practices, but we are more than that. We are here to serve the broader community of professionals and parents in service of children and adults with a wide range of learning challenges.
On the website you will find information related to all aspects of educational therapy, such as the definition of education therapy, the How to Find an Educational Therapist section, or sections with information on professional practices related to business, ethics, education, academic skills, and the psychoeducational and social aspects of learning.
In addition, you will find many opportunities to learn. The Educational Therapist Journal is available to members only, but we have a wide range of exciting webinars, workshops and conferences that are open to anyone who is interested. Our workshops are completed for 2021, and I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. AET looks forward to new and exciting workshops for 2022. In the meantime, please take a look at our upcoming educational events, including our webinars, study groups, and Facebook live events, which are held virtually, as well as some exciting social events, such as our virtual President’s Circle Campaign Kick Off wine tasting event on May 1st. Come and support AET, meet the board, see your AET colleagues and friends, and enjoy learning about some wines, as well as non-alcoholic beverages. It is important to have fun, as well as learn!
Last, but not least, on our website you will find ways for you to be involved with AET. Of course, AET membership offers a wide range of benefits and opportunities. But, beyond membership and the continuing education opportunities mentioned above, AET offers participation in study groups, committee involvement, and even Board participation to members who want to improve and promote the profession of educational therapy. Your active participation is encouraged and we welcome you.
