Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities: Interprofessional Strategies
Continuing Education Credit
Earn Lots of CEUs!
At the Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities online conference you can earn up to 2.0 ASHA CEUs or 20 professional development hours (PDHs). The amount of units you earn is based on the number of sessions you complete and chats you attend.
Recorded sessions are available on demand while the conference is in session. You may listen to them any time that fits your schedule. Each lecture is planned to be approximately 1 hour long. The exact duration of each one will be posted in the conference hall.
Each live chat session is 1 hour long. To receive credit for a chat, you must be logged in for the full hour. You do not need to post a question to receive credit but you must be online.
Since the conference is packed with great information, you will have access to recorded sessions, chat transcripts, and discussion boards for an additional 2 weeks (June 24–July 7) after the conference ends! During this extension, use the archived information for reference only—sorry, continuing education credit cannot be earned after the conference ends on June 23.
Reporting Your Attendance
Reporting your attendance is honor-based. Enter your activities in our online learning center. The system will track and total your time, and convert the total to PDHs or ASHA CEUs as appropriate.
About CEUs and PDHs
ASHA CEUs and Eligibility
ASHA CEUs are awarded through the ASHA CE Registry to SLPs, audiologists, or speech/language/hearing scientists. To receive ASHA CEUs, eligible persons must join the ASHA CE Registry. Learn more about the Registry.
Joining the Registry is optional. If you are eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, but choose not to join the Registry, you may track your own professional development hours (PDHs).
This program is offered for up to 2.0 ASHA CEUs (Various levels; Professional area)
Professional Development Hours and Eligibility
Professional development hours (PDHs) are an alternative measurement unit for continuing education activities. Related professionals, SLP and audiology assistants, and others may receive PDHs.
PDHs from this conference apply toward ASHA certification maintenance. You should check with other authorities (such as state license boards or departments of education) to see if they recognize PDHs.
How CEUs/PDHs Are Calculated
Keep the following points in mind while keeping track of you CEUs.
- One ASHA CEU equals 10 hours of instruction.
- One PDH equals 1 hour of instruction.
- Both ASHA CEUs and PDHs are rounded down to the nearest half hour. So, for example, if you complete 11 recorded sessions totaling 11 hours, 38 minutes, and four live chats totaling 4 hours, you would receive 15.5 PDHs, or 1.55 ASHA CEUs.
