Dear ALTA Community,
We hope that all of you are staying safe and doing your part as we work together to get through these difficult times.
While the health crisis caused by COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work, we at the Academic Language Therapy Association continue to focus on our mission – the remediation of written language skills.
Because of COVID-19 and the risks posed by large gatherings, we have cancelled our Annual Conference in May. Instead, we are focused on finding innovative ways to stay connected. In order to provide continued educational opportunities to our members, we are developing our first Virtual Conference. We will provide you with more information on this exciting development in the coming months.
ALTA wants to make sure that all members have the support they need right now. While we are maintaining our standard training hours and requirements, we will provide time extensions to complete those requirements as well as increase online training opportunities.
The ALTA Board of Directors is active and engaged. Although we cannot meet in person, the Board will meet remotely, May 2nd, to discuss ongoing business and ensure the organization continues to thrive even in this difficult time.
As we work through this crisis, it is crucial to stay connected with one another – even as we practice social distancing to reduce transmission and keep each other healthy and safe. Our team is here to provide uninterrupted support to you, so please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any issues or questions.
ALTA Board of Directors
