Special Thanks to Contributors
Share |

IAYT is pleased to acknowledge the many contributions made by IAYT members and supporters!  Your contributions, both financial and taking time to provide your input, have been key to our ability to create standards for our profession.  We could not have done it without you.

Special thanks for the over 1100 Member responses provided to the surveys that lead to the finalization of the Grandparenting Rules and Process, the Code of Ethics, and the Scope of Practice!

We are especially grateful to the 254 donors who generously contributed financially to supporting our mission and the creation of the IAYT Certification process. 

Additionally, IAYT recognizes that it is largely due to the support of 232 current and past member schools that the development of our Standards, including Accreditation of Programs, Certification of Individuals and all the related processes and documentation has been fiscally possible.
