“Communication in Children With Autism,” an online virtual conference for speech-language pathologists, will take place March 1–15.
The conference will focus on assessment, diagnosis, and intervention for children and young adults (ages 2–21) with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), addressing the full range of communication levels. Expert speakers will address topics in assessment/diagnosis, intervention approaches supported by current research, and service delivery models, all with an emphasis on the SLP’s role.
Participants will be able to interact with speakers and participants from around the world—without leaving home. Conference features include:
  • 18 pre-recorded PowerPoint lectures available on demand while the conference is in session, with opportunities for live interaction with presenters and colleagues.

  • Resource library of supplementary materials (in PDF format), some of which may be offered for additional CEUs.

  • Real-time scheduled chat meetings with presenters and participant-initiated chats to network with colleagues.

  • Links for referencing other Web sites, categorized and listed with icons, logos, and descriptions.

  • Communication with other participants (a directory that can be searched alphabetically or by keyword, a list of participants online at any given time, and private messaging to other participants).

  • Tools to ease conference navigation, including a daily e-mail of the day’s events, a calendar of all conference events, and a help desk run by ASHA professional development staff.

  • 17 presenters—clinicians and researchers—with expertise in methods of assessment, diagnosis, and intervention.

CEUs
The number of ASHA CEUs or professional development hours (PDHs) each participant earns depends on how many CEU components are completed. CEU components include the pre-recorded lectures, live chats with presenters, and CEU-eligible readings. (Informal discussions, meetings with other participants, and other readings do not count for CEUs.) Participants may earn a maximum of 3.0 ASHA CEUs.
