Additional benefits include:
- Marketing and other public relations services,
- Malpractice and liability insurance,
- Ongoing professional development opportunities,
- Consultation with ASDEC faculty and supervisory team,
- Photocopy and other office support services, and

Many certified ATs establish their own private practice. ASDEC refers students to our certified ATs.
Certified ATs may join ASDEC’s Supervisory team after completing a six-month internship. Supervisors meet with Academic Therapy interns three times per month and conduct on-site as well as videotaped observations.
Certified ATs who have a master’s degree may join the ASDEC faculty as Qualified Instructors after completing three years as an AT, delivering 1400 hours of academic therapy, and teaching a multisensory Language Education Course (MSLE) course under supervision. Instructors also deliver workshops in the Washington area as well as throughout the country.
