New teaching skills for the educational therapist

Understand learning differences and have a greater impact in the classroom. This free evening event provides a short overview of the Education Therapy courses and certificate program for new and returning students. This is where you learn strategies to teach people of all ages with learning differences, work with their families and understand related state and federal laws. Coursework meets Association of Educational Therapists’ requirements and culminates in an internship. Students who have established candidacy for the full certificate are encouraged to apply for an AET associate level membership. Sharmila Roy, Educational Therapy chair and instructor, and staff will be available to answer individual questions and recommend course sequences. You'll also have the opportunity to network with fellow students and discuss career options for educators in various fields.
