Continuing Education Units for Professionals—Autism Partnership is an approved Continuing Education Provider for the following four (4) autism related associations: ASHA, BBS, APA and BACB.
During on-line registration, you will be able to request a ticket that includes Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from the following associations. You may sign up to receive more than one CEU when registering IF you have certification numbers in more than one of the following associations (you will pay for $20 for each additional CEU requested the morning of the workshop):
ASHA (0.5 units Level: Intermediate; Area: Professional) and
BACB (6 types 2 units) and
APA (5 hours) and
BBS (5 hours)
If you are not associated with ASHA, BACB, APA or BBS, you can choose General CEUs. By registering under General CEUs, the participant is responsible for taking their certificate of attendance to their governing board, state or school district to negotiate if this workshop meets their requirements for continuing education. Since Autism Partnership is not affiliated with alternate boards, CEUs are not guaranteed.
Each Association has different requirements for participants to complete prior to earning the CEUs. To earn CEUs you must:
Register under the name used by ASHA, BACB, BBS or APA (for example, if your certification or license is under a maiden name or nickname, you must register under that name)
Sign in/out on workshop day (ASHA requires participants to sign in/out for lunch as well)
Complete and submit back to Autism Partnership the required packed on workshop day.
Pick up your certificate of attendance at the end of the workshop

“Whose IEP is it Anyway??
Presented by: Andrea Waks, J.D., M.A.
In today’s complicated world of special education and services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the IEP process can be confusing, overwhelming, and all too often, contentious. This workshop will focus on bringing parents and school personnel together in gaining a greater understanding of the IEP process and building a collaborative IEP team. Topics will include: An overview of IDEA and the law; understanding the IEP process; emphasizing the “Individualized” in IEP; developing IEP goals that make a difference; Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and research based methodologies; and common IEP pitfalls.
