Training Auditory Processing In Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders And Other Developmental Disabilities

# e05   Training Auditory Processing In Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders And Other Developmental Disabilities

by Martha Burns, PhD, CCC-SLP

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

$ 31.00

This course is designed to help speech-language pathologists and educators understand the current research and management approaches for auditory processing disorders (C)APD as evident in children on the autism spectrum (ASD) and children with other developmental learning challenges. The presentation will review new neuroscience research to help participants understand how the brain processes auditory information like speech as well as causative factors known to contribute to (C)APD in children. The course will conclude with presentation of evidence-based interventions from several sources that have been shown to improve auditory processing and effect brain function. The interventions discussed are general in nature providing a starting point and guide to developing specific and comprehensive treatment programs. Offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs – 2 contact hours.

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Utilize neuroscience research to identify children at risk for auditory processing disorders (C)APD.
  2. Develop evidence-based intervention plans for children on the autism spectrum (ASD).
  3. Develop evidence-based intervention plans for children with developmental disorders other than ASD.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order
to receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.

ASHA CEUS: Attendees must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs:
