ISHA ANNUAL CONVENTION CEU PROCEDURES
The Illinois Speech-Language-Hearing Association is approved by the Continuing Education Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to provide continuing education activities in speech-language pathology and audiology. This program is offered for up to 27 hours or 2.7 ASHA CEUs (Various Levels; Professional Area). ASHA CE Provider status does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products, or clinical procedures.
An annual Continuing Education Registry fee is required to register ASHA CEUs. Continuing Education Registry fees are paid by the participant directly to the ASHA national office ($28 for ASHA/NSSLHA members; $38 for nonmembers). This fee allows for registration and ASHA documentation of an unlimited number of CEUs for the calendar year. CEUs for this convention are offered to participants at no additional charge. You can file CEUs with the ASHA registry or keep track of your CEU/contact hours with the letter of verification you will receive onsite.
