We all know that in order to maintain our state licensure and national board certification with ASHA, we have to have continuing education. Want to complete those requirements without leaving your couch? Here are 10 FREE Websites for FREE ASHA CEUs that you won't want to scroll past in your search.
On the Hunt
Of course, I began the search by googling "free ASHA CEUs." And while that query did give me some great options, many of the free courses available were primarily focused on product or equipment training. Additionally, not all free courses were ASHA approved! Let's be honest...if you're in need of extra course hours, you might as well take the ones that are ASHA approved. Because I spent a good bit of time looking through different sites for free courses with ASHA's approval stamp, I'd like to share the sites I found with you! Just in case you find yourself in the same boat in the future.
Any one of the FREE courses for ASHA CEUs offered on these sites is an absolute steal! The courses are presented by knowledgeable professionals and are, in general, very practical.
SpeechPathology.com You can take any ONE course for free with their current promo code (JAN 2021, it's 1FREECOURSE)! No payment information required. That means that after you take your free course, you don't have to worry about forgetting to cancel a limited-time only automatically renewed subscription.
SLP Summit The SLP Summit is a 4-day virtual event with 8 speakers who are in the trenches of clinical work. It occurs in January and August every year. If you miss one of the live events, they are also available as a recording for a few weeks after the event. All courses are FREE, but you can have brIQht Ideas report your course completion for CEUs for $25.00.
Tobii Dynavox There's a little bit of a process to sign up (i.e., providing verification of ASHA certification, etc), but the initial hassle is totally worth it. Tobii Dynavox offers a ton of AAC-related free recorded webinars for ASHA CEUs. If you haven't read the blog How to be Successful with AAC in Teletherapy yet, make sure you check it out before your first Tele-AAC session.
Northern Speech Services If you become a peer reviewer, you are able to earn ASHA CEUs for the course that you review once you have passed the test. You must attest to being an expert (at least 5 years experience) in the topic of the course to be able to be a peer reviewer.
SATPAC This is on my CEU TO-DO list and I'm very excited about it! SATPAC stands for Systematic Articulation Training Program Accessing Computers. The course information blurb indicates that a viewer will receive training to remediate /r/ and /s/ sounds using the SATPAC approach. FREE 0.3 CEUs!
Pearson Pearson offers an ASHA-approved complimentary live webinar about once a month on a variety of topics. Coming up are courses titled "Prime Time to Screen," "A Model for Dyslexia Screening," and "Case Studies: Progress Monitoring and Intervention."
Lingraphica Lingraphica offers several complimentary, pre-recorded courses related to using their system in aphasia treatment.
Mayer-Johnson (Boardmaker) The list of recorded courses here is extensive, but make sure you pay attention to the far left column - ASHA approved or not! Most of these courses, included the couple that I viewed focused on training with different Boardmaker programs.
Leaders Project The Leaders Project offers a few free, pre-recorded courses for a fairly large amount of CEUs. All great stuff!
Johns Hopkins University The School of Nursing offers two different courses, one on language processing in the classroom and one on AAC, as well as links to courses offered by Passy-Muir.
I hope this list, though not extensive, has proved beneficial for you! I would love to hear if you find any other places offering free ASHA CEUs! Need a PRO BONO log for keeping track of all of your accumulated CEUs??? Here's a fillable PDF log FREELY available at my TPT store!
