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:
If an attendee is not an ASHA member or CCC holder but meets any of the above criteria, they may inform the ASHA CE Registry of their eligibility by visiting this site.

Additional accrediting agencies by which Northern Speech is an approved CE provider:
"The speaker communicated in a clear easy to understand way. Loved the combination of videos and slides. Congratulations! Will definitely recommend this course to my colleagues." – A.B.L. (Feb. 2017)
"I found the research on early identification most helpful. I work with young toddlers and there is often skepticism about when to refer for testing. I enjoyed the examples/videos." – A.T. (Feb. 2017)
"As I work in an early intervention setting, all of the e-course was beneficial! There was a nice review of information that I have learned from other sources, but the information that was completely new to me was the information about early vocalizations (i.e., atypical acoustics at 6 months and lower proportion of canonical syllables) and which repetitive behaviors are earlier or later developing." – J.G. (Feb. 2017)
"I appreciate feeling confident in sharing/discussing red flags with family and recommending full developmental assessment. The videos were very helpful." – S.G. (Jan. 2017)
"The review of social and communication milestones of infants and toddlers was very helpful. I liked the use of videos to compare typical toddlers and atypical toddlers." – M.N. (Jan. 2017)
"The discussion regarding the assessment tools was most beneficial. The videos enhanced the course and made it more real by seeing examples of what was being discussed." – W.L. (Dec. 2016)
"I appreciated going over the early markers to be aware of. I liked that the speaker had a very soothing voice! Also like watching videos that sharply contrasted normal-developing skills to early ASD markers." – J.D. (Dec. 2016)
"I liked the way the videos were included in the course." – P.M. (Dec. 2016)
"The portion on how to interact with parents was excellent. I liked that the course was very easy to follow." – K.H. (Dec. 2016)
"Everything was beneficial. I liked the format, flow and the videos to support the narrative." – A.G. (Dec. 2016)
"Going over how to evaluate was very useful. Easy to understand, step by step." – L.W. (Dec. 2016)
"The discussion on how to diagnose was most helpful. I liked the handouts." – I.E. (Dec. 2016)
"This is great - very timely. The talking to the parent part is very beneficial - no one is comfortable approaching the subject." – C.T. (Nov. 2016)
"This is an excellent course for any clinician that needs specific information on diagnosing or evaluating a young child that is possibly or has been diagnosed as being on the spectrum. School Based SLPs could use a lot of this information to include in their speech and language assessments for younger children entering the district. It would be very appropriate for a speech pathologist to comment on these skills during assessment and re-evaluation procedures. The format was amazing. There were so many specific examples that had videos to ensure comprehension." – M.K. (Oct. 2016)
