Maintain Your CEU's - Resources!
Last week I wrote a post
about the absolute necessity of maintaining your ASHA CEU's and how to do it. This week as promised I am providing a variety of updated resources that you can use to earn your credits as well as find trainings that both interest you and are pertinent to your current job position.
- Look to YOUR State Speech Organization - In the state of Pennsylvania, our speech organization is PSHA (Pennsylvania Speech-Language and Hearing Association). They hold a conference every year and offer ASHA approved trainings and seminars. Find out what the local speech and language organization is in your area and see what they offer.
- Look to YOUR Local County/State Education System - In the state of Pennsylvania, our educational training network is PATTAN (Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network) whose main mission "is to support the efforts and initiatives of the Bureau of Special Education and to build the capacity of local educational agencies to serve students who receive special education services." PATTAN offers trainings throughout the year and has served to be an excellent way to earn FREE ASHA credits. Find out what the educational training network in your state is and see what they offer.
- Linguisystems - Through the linguisystems' website you can browse for FREE ASHA credits; however you do need to become a linguisystems member in order to enjoy this benefit.
- The ASHA Website - Go right to the source and earn ASHA credits by browsing ASHA's website to find trainings and seminars that are perfect for the type of work you do.
- Home CEU Connection - This is a website created by two PTs with the vision to "provide convenient and cost effective online continuing education opportunities for rehabilitation professionals." Check out the site and see for yourself. CEU's offered range in price and number of credit hours.
- Northern Speech Services (NSS) - "The mission of Northern Speech Services is to empower professionals with cutting-edge tools, information and support to provide the most effective therapy possible." I recently received their flyer in the mail and it caught my eye. The seminars offered were focused mainly on early intervention and addressed issues that were pertinent to my work and the population I serve. I found the information on both the flyer and website easy to read and navigate.
Good luck and I hope that you find these resources helpful and inspiring!
