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. Explore our Mission Statement and Statement of Commitment to find out what AET is about, and check out our brand-new Monthly Member Profile feature, which can be found under the “about us” tab to learn about individual AET members.
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 directory, or sections with information on professional practices related to business, ethics, education, academic skills, the psychoeducational and social aspects of learning, and issues of public policy importance.
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 excellent Workshops are complete for 2022, but you can look ahead to 2023 for more workshops. The AET webinar series is ongoing, with many exciting opportunities for learning on the calendar for the remainder of this year and beyond. November 4-6, we welcome you to our Annual National Conference. This year the conference will be held virtually, with the timely theme of What Influences Learning: An Exploration of Social, Emotional and Behavioral Factors. Registration is open now. In addition. please take a look at our social media pages on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter for additional programming and up-to-date information. Many new and ongoing study groups are available, including our long standing regional and international study groups, as well as some new virtual groups dedicated to such things as collegial interaction, developing a practice, or discussing professional books. Study groups are a great way to meet other professionals, stay up to date, and have fun.
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.
Thanks for visiting!
