Summary This study explores the histories of physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), and speech and language pathology (SLP), and provides a cross-comparative analysis of educational therapy (ET) and its allied professional groups. The essential components detailed by leaders within PT, OT, and SLP equip the researcher with a critical lens through which to examine the past, present, and future of ET. Using online questionnaires, the researcher surveyed a sample of novice and seasoned ETs, on the topics of professionalization and resources. The findings confirmed that ETs have strong ideas on the future of the profession and on how to best support the novice ET community. Respondents expressed their needs, desires, and concerns regarding driving the profession forward, advancing ETs from novice to expert, and provided suggestions for developing new resources and materials.
