Workshops & Training

Our organization is an ASHA approved Continuing Education (CE) Provider by the Continuing Education Board (CEB) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). ASHA approved CE Providers are the only organizations approved to offer continuing education courses to audiologists and speech-language pathologists for ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  Our team underwent a rigorous application process and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ASHA Continuing Board standards to qualify for this achievement. We are proud to be part of the group of organizations that demonstrate a commitment to high-quality CE Programming for audiologists and speech-language pathologists.  Our Continuing Education program is led by Beth Lippes-Inabinet, MA, CCC-SLP, Clinical Director at Mediscan.
