Illinois Early Intervention Training Credit
The following courses are pre-approved for training credit for all EI providers in Illinois. (As well as all for SLPs and any other therapist anywhere else in the world!)
Click the links below for specific course information, but here’s a short summary of how this works. It’s easy, economical, and fast (depending on how speedy you are on your end!)
All courses are on DVD. Credit hours vary by course, but the time/hours are listed in the first line of each description so you’ll know how much credit you’ll receive. Once you purchase the course, we ship via USPS within 1 or 2 days and allow an additional couple of days for delivery. Each full-length course comes with a course manual, a set of copy-ready handouts to share with families, and the forms you’ll need for completing the CE process. The forms include a checklist of step-by-step directions for completing the process, a simple test (you’ll get a review sheet to help!), a program evaluation form, a request for a certificate of completion, and an ASHA CE Participant Form (for SLPs if applicable). Return the forms via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by regular mail in the envelope provided. You can choose whether you’ll receive your certificate by regular mail or email. If you need your certificate ASAP, after you submit the forms, email me at Laura@teachmetotalk.com and let me know so I can turn it around quickly for you. One set of CE credit for one person is included with each full-length course on DVD purchase. If you’d like to add additional participants, the fee is $50 per person which includes their own conference manual, handouts and forms to complete for CE credit. It’s preferred that each additional person is added at the time of original purchase of the course so that we can track CE credit more efficiently.
