Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities: Interprofessional Strategies

How Online Conferences Work

Learning—Whenever and Wherever

You're bound to love the benefits of attending an online conference! Online conferences are:

  • Convenient. Listen to sessions whenever and wherever—even on mobile devices!
  • Comprehensive. Get relevant, apply-today information and techniques that will help you work with adolescents better than before.
  • Concise. These short, 1-hour sessions easily fit in your schedule!
  • Effortless. Relax—there's no test! Sit back, listen to the lecture, participate in the live chats, and earn up to 2.0 ASHA CEUs (20 professional development hours).

Plus, you'll have access to lectures, discussions, course handouts, presenters, and other participants—without the trouble and expense of travel. All you need is a device with Internet access.

Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities includes:

  • 9 recorded lectures—available on demand while the conference is in session. Unlike in-person conferences with concurrent sessions, you can "attend" all the lectures!
  • A discussion thread related to each lecture. Post your comments and questions, and get reactions from other conference participants and presenters.
  • Live, text-based chats with presenters. During these scheduled 1-hour chats, you can interact directly with presenters.
  • Handouts and other resources. Download and print or save handouts from all the lectures, as well as related resource documents.
  • Networking opportunities. Post a professional profile and find others with similar professional interests and specialties.
