How I "ACE"d ASHA Continuing Education
Award for Continuing Education (ACE) Recipients Tell Their Stories
"I have been a practicing full time SLP for the past 39 years. During this time I have worked in all settings including schools, private practice, rehabilitation agency, nursing facilities, home health care and hospitals, foreign accent reduction and corporate speech training. With this varied experience I have had the opportunity to treat patients/clients with many different diagnoses. In every instance, I have felt strongly that continuing education was necessary to provide the most optimum care/therapy to each and every patient.
I have always embraced the opportunity to obtain CEUs. When receiving these ACE awards, I have always shared them with my employers. I have supervised many students and other professionals and have always emphasized the importance of continuing education within our profession. The ACE is an excellent format in which to track my continuing education. I am thankful to ASHA for developing the ACE. "
