Continuing Education Credit at Rare Diseases and Disorders: SLP Assessment and Intervention

September 18–30, 2024 | Online Conference

At this online conference, you can earn up to 1.9 ASHA CEUs or 19 professional development hours (PDHs), including 6 hours of live video chats.

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 watch them any time that fits your schedule. Each session is planned to be approximately 1 hour long. The exact duration of each one will be posted in the conference hall.

Live Video Chats

Each live video chat session is a half-hour long. To receive credit for a live chat, you must be logged in for the full duration. 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 video chat if you are unable to attend live. We encourage participants to attend live if at all possible, but if you have a schedule conflict, you can watch the recording before the last day of the conference. Credit will be given for either the live chat or the on-demand recording of the chat, not both.


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 (October 1–14) 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 September 30.

Reporting Your Attendance

You must enter your activities in the ASHA Learning Center to receive credit. We encourage you to add your activities after each session, but you may enter all your activities at once if you prefer. Activities must be added no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, September 30, 2024. 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 September 30.

The system will keep a running total of the activities you have added, 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 entering your attendance inside the conference site.

You will automatically receive an event report (aka certificate of completion) after you finish the activity-reporting process. The certificate of completion/event report lists the session names and number of hours you completed. If you are a member of the ASHA CE Registry, credits will be reported to the Registry no later than October 25.

If you miss the reporting deadline because of an extenuating circumstance, see the ASHA Professional Development appeals process.

About ASHA 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).

ASHA Approved Provider Block - 450

This program is offered for up to 1.9 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level; 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 ASHA CEUs/PDHs Are Calculated

Keep the following points in mind while keeping track of your ASHA CEUs/PDHs.

  • 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.
