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. Please take a look at our upcoming events, including our 42nd Annual Conference, The New Normal: Supporting our Clients and Ourselves, which will be held virtually, via livestream and online, October 23-24, 2020. The featured speaker for the conference is Jane Holmes Berstein PhD, who will speak on Reaction, response, resilience in unprecedented times. Strategies for living and learning after major life change. This is our first virtual conference, and we are very excited about the possibilities being virtual offers. There is still time to register!
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.
