General Registration—Most participants attending the seminar should register under “General Registration”. This category of ticket is for participants who are attending for general knowledge and do not need Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  The alternate Registration with CEUs includes the processing fee for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as needed to maintain autism-related professional licenses or certificates. 

 

Registration with CEUs  Continuing Education Units for Professionals—Autism Partnership is an approved Continuing Education Provider for the following four (4) autism-related associations: ASHA, BBS, APA and BACB.

 

During on-line registration, you will be able to make a selection that will register you to receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) upon completion of the workshop. (You should not choose "general registration").  You may sign-up to receive more than one CEU when registering IF you have certification numbers for more than one of the following associations. 

 

CEUs Pending Approval are:

 

  • ASHA (0.6 units -Level: Intermediate; Area: Professional) and

  • BACB (7, type 2 units) and

  • APA (6 credits) and

  • BBS (6 hours) 

    If you are not associated with ASHA, BACB, APA or BBS, register under the General Registration ticket. By registering under General Registration, the participant is responsible for taking their certificate of attendance to their governing board, state or school district to negotiate if this workshop meets their requirements for continuing education. Since Autism Partnership is not affiliated with alternate boards, CEUs are not guaranteed.

    Each Association has different requirements for participants to complete.  Prior to earning the CEUs, participants must:

 

  • Register under the name used by ASHA, BACB, BBS or APA (for example, if your certification or   license is under a maiden name or nickname, you must register under that name)

  • Sign in/out on workshop day (ASHA requires participants to sign in/out for lunch as well)

  • Complete and submit back to Autism Partnership the required packet on workshop day

- Factors Unique to ASD that Impact Language Development

 

- Accelerating Language Development and Fluency

 

- Structured vs. Naturalistic Teaching
