Continuing Education Courses for Speech Language Pathologists:
Visuals for Autism: Beyond the Basic Symbols is a 2-hour online video CE course. It is well-established
by research that many learners on the autism spectrum benefit from the use of visuals. How can we go
beyond a basic use of symbols to create and implement individualized visuals that will help our students
learn and communicate more comprehensively? Participants will learn about considerations and
strategies to take into account in order to put more effective visuals in place for their students on the
autism spectrum. Topics covered include: broadening symbol selection, adding layers and additional
components to visuals in order to make them more motivating and meaningful, providing visuals for a
wide variety of expressive communicative functions, and using visuals for comprehension and
organization as well as expression.
Ethics for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is a 2-hour online CE course. Speech-language
pathologists and audiologists encounter ethical issues across the spectrum of practice settings, from
pediatric treatment to care of elders in skilled nursing facilities. This course will present an overview of
ethical issues that arise in speech-language pathology and audiology practice, including barriers to
ethical thinking, evidence-based ethics, economics, discrimination, abuse, bullying in the workplace,
boundaries, confidentiality, social media, and infection control.
Helping Your Young Client Persevere in the Face of Learning Differences is a 3-hour online video CE
course. Clinicians and teachers working with students struggling at grade level are committed to raising
their students’ achievement potential by creating opportunities to learn. In order to accomplish this,
they need to learn new techniques that can help encourage discouraged students – particularly those
who have different ways of learning – by supporting and motivating them without enabling selfdefeating habits. This course will provide strategies and techniques for helping students minimize the
patterns of “learned helplessness” they have adopted, appreciate and maximize their strengths, develop
a growth mindset, value effort and persistence over success, view mistakes as opportunities to learn,
and develop a love of learning that will help them take personal responsibility for their school work. The
course video is split into 3 parts for your convenience.
