Shelly Bloom will be in Souther California (Encino) on April 1 and Sarah Ward will be joining us in New York (New Rochelle) on April 29. Both speakers will provide interactive and hands-on professional development opportunities that you can apply to your clients' sessions immediately! Continuing education credit is available.

The Resources List has authors, researchers, websites, and podcasts sorted by subject area for you to reference. The Educational Therapist Journal is published twice a year and available to members.
The Careers section will help you on your pathway from Associate, to Professional to BCET. The first phase of our newest addition, the Life Cycle Project, is available in the membership section, under practice support. Past webinars, archived on this site, offer a treasure trove of learning. Don’t forget to download AET’s logo, in the membership section, to put on your correspondence.

AET is an organization of volunteers. Working together, we have a robust membership with international representation. We have a national voice, through our work with NJCLD, the National Joint Council on Learning Disabilities that, among other goals, develops policy papers in the area of learning disabilities to clarify issues, influence policy, improve practice, and increase knowledge.
Within our organization we have many committees and subcommittees sharing the responsibilities and you are invited to join. Here is a partial listing. Please let us know if you have an interest in joining.
Development - working on ways to increase revenue so more professional development opportunities can be offered free of charge to members
Grants & Scholarships - seeking out opportunities so AET can continue to support its members and offer programs
eNews - helping to prepare the monthly newsletter, so members have easy access to current Association information.
Public Policy - joining monthly discussions to help compose public policy statements from AET
Social Justice - participating in projects to help further social justice within AET and the communities we serve
Higher Education - welcoming and supporting educational therapy certificate & master's programs in aligning with AET standards of practice
