Free CEUs for SLP's | Clinicians' Corner
Hello, fellow speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and clinicians! I’m writing this on the cusp of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) shutting down their free access to the ASHA Learning Pass. I hope you all were able to take advantage of that free access.
Now, I understand the importance of continuing education when it comes to our field and I understand that recording our completion of said courses is a means by which ASHA can ensure that we are at least trying to do something to improve ourselves as clinicians. With that being said, I also don’t like spending extra money on things when I don’t have to, especially right now amidst a financial crisis and viral outbreak.
So, what is a frugal SLP to do? Well, if you’re like me, you hunt and search familiar websites and blogs to find opportunities for courses and continuing education units (CEUs). However even during that process, I frequently find dead links and unnecessary redirects. So, I decided to take the liberty to list some of the best options for free CEUs out there in my opinion (Just so you know, all included links and affiliated organizations are also provided at the end of this post). First and foremost, I recommend Lingraphica’s Certification program. As a program that I just went through, I have to say that it grants you access to some great trainings and a lot of CEUs (up to 3.4)! But more than that, if you go through this program for real, you can gain access to a loaner iPad and TouchTalk device for as long as you’re active in the program.
Also, I’m a huge fan of the TalkPath Therapy and TalkPath News apps from Lingraphica, which are also an aspect of Lingraphica’s Certification program. Passy Muir also provides a myriad of ASHA-approved courses which cover various concepts relative to Passy Muir Valve assessment and use. Check it out further. Click Here
