The Curious Edge Receives Continued Approval as an ASHA Approved Continuing Educator Provider
ASHA Approved CE Provider Status Demonstrates Commitment to High-Quality CE Programming for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists
January 11, 2018 – The Continuing Education Board (CEB) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) recognized The Curious Edge on January 11, 2018 by reapproving them for an additional five years as an ASHA Approved Continuing Education (CE) Provider. ASHA Approved CE Providers are approved to offer ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the courses they offer to audiologists and speech-language pathologists. The recognition period extends for five years and includes all courses offered during that time that meet the ASHA CEB standards.
“We are pleased to continue to work with The Curious Edge as an ASHA Approved CE Provider organization,” stated Dr. Gail J. Richard, president of ASHA and director of the Autism Center and professor emeritus in the Department of Communication Disorders & Sciences at Eastern Illinois University. Richards added, “The Curious Edge is part of 540 organizations across the county and around the world that have had their organizational process and courses reviewed by our experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”
In order to achieve ASHA Approved CE Provider status, The Curious Edge completed a rigorous application process and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ASHA Continuing Education Board standards that focus on the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its continuing education courses offered for audiologists and speech-language pathologists. The re-approval process involved the review of all courses offered by The Curious Edge in the past five-year period and their on-going adherence to ASHA CEB standards. As a result of re-approval, The Curious Edge agreed to continue their compliance with ASHA CEB standards and can continue to promote their organization and courses using the ASHA CE logo on promotional course material. In addition, The Curious Edge is listed on the ASHA CEB’s Approved CE Provider list and their courses that meet CEB standards appear in the ASHA CEFind on the ASHA website at www.asha.org/CE/.
