At AAED, we seek to hire those with a passion and heart for our kids. Our teachers and therapists are certified and trained to teach students with learning differences. We believe that on-going professional development and job-related trainings, both in and out of the classroom, are key to our employees feeling valued and confident. Our organization understands that improving staff skills and knowledge is one of the most important investments that we can make. Every child can learn and be successful, some just learn differently. That’s why we are committed to ensuring our staff is trained in the latest evidence-based practices for students with autism.
