Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication
December 1–13, 2021 | Online Conference
At this online conference, we estimate you will be able to earn up to 2.4 ASHA CEUs or 24 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 video 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.
For this online conference, you may earn credit for watching an on-demand recording of a live video chat if you are unable to attend. We encourage participants to attend live if at all possible, but if you have a schedule conflict, please post a question on the discussion board and then watch the recording before the last day of the conference. You may claim credit whether your question is addressed or not.
Since the conference is packed with great information, you will have access to recorded sessions, on-demand chat recordings, and discussion boards for an additional 2 weeks (December 14–27) 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 December 13.
Note: With the ASHA Learning Pass, conference participants can continue to access some of the conference content even after the archive period ends. This extended access is limited to the recorded lectures only; chat recordings, discussion threads, and additional materials are only available until the end of the archive period.
You must enter your activities in the ASHA Learning Center to receive credit. We encourage you to report your activities after each session, but you may enter all your activities at once if you prefer. Activities must be reported no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, December 13, 2021. If you need a record of the activities in which you participated—or think you may need a record in the future—you must report for credit by December 13.
The system will keep a running total of the activities you have reported, allowing you to track the number of hours accrued. The system will then convert your total hours to ASHA CEUs or PDHs as appropriate. You can find detailed instructions for reporting your attendance inside the conference site.
If you are a member of the ASHA CE Registry, credits will be reported to the Registry no later than January 7.
If you miss the reporting deadline because of an extenuating circumstance, see the ASHA Professional Development appeals process.
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 2.4 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level; Professional area)
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.
Keep the following points in mind while keeping track of your ASHA CEUs/PDHs.
"I was able to earn so many CE credits in a short period of time, over a specific topic, and from so many different experts."
