Feel S.M.A.R.T. and Confident by Eliminating the Guesswork
Sarah Bevier and Lisa Kathman (SLP Toolkit)
Have you ever sat in an IEP meeting and thought, “Please don’t ask me why I picked those goals?” or been questioned by an advocate during an IEP? It all boils down to having the data you need to support your treatment recommendations. Join us to discover a systematic way to get a comprehensive strengths and needs profile for your students, eliminating the anxiety that can happen when asked tough questions at meetings. Participants will learn strategies to use a visual framework for mapping out how to best meet identified needs.

Keep Your Students Motivated With Videos
Hallie Sherman (Speech Time Fun)
Many SLPs working with school-aged children do not realize the amount of therapy activities that can be designed around videos. The presenter will choose a variety of videos that can be found on YouTube and systematically address practical ways to use each one to target different areas of communication (articulation, language, and pragmatics). All of the suggested therapy ideas will be direct, evidence-based, related to common core, interactive, and engaging. Participants will walk away with practical therapy ideas they can use the very next day. They will have suggested activities for targeting all areas of communication. They will also have the framework necessary to design their own ideas using videos they find themselves. Participants will have an understanding of the importance of providing engaging, evidence-based, and interactive activities with school-aged children.

Are these courses pre-approved for ASHA credit?

These courses are not being provided or sponsored through an ASHA CE provider and will NOT be sent to the ASHA registry. Therefore they cannot be credited toward an ASHA ACE award.

Do I get a certificate?

Yes! You will be able to print a certificate for each course after you complete a brief quiz. We recommend saving these certificates to a cloud-based platform such as Google Drive as we cannot provide copies of these once the conference has ended.

Every state has different requirements for what they will accept. Check with your specific state’s licensing agency to see if these courses meet their guidelines. In addition to signed certificates, we will be providing a course summary, learning objectives, and speaker bios for each course.

Yes! We just can’t guarantee that the continuing education hours will be accepted by your licensing agency. We recommend contacting your agency to verify that your hours will be accepted.
