The idea of transitioning from graduate student supervision to CF supervision/mentorship has been a daunting one, but this course presented a realistic, achievable, and efficient plan for preparing, participating in, and completing a CF supervision experience. The guidelines/steps were clear as well encouraging. I hope to reference the materials presented in this course in the very near future! Thank you for covering this crucial topic.

This course was incredibly helpful as it gave me a one-stop shop to start to feel confident in my ability to have a successful mentoring/supervising experience. Of course, I will continue to learning about the Supervisory CF experience and duties; however, this was an excellent start to guide me in the right direction. I enjoyed all of the handouts that were provided and how they were easily explained in detail. This course allowed me to look forward to future mentoring experiences with excitement rather than stress.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for speech-language pathologists

ASHA CEUs: McRory Pediatrics online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of ASHA CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 ASHA CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

ASHA CE Registry: During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you complete the provided CE Participation Form, McRory Pediatrics will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on June 7th, McRory Pediatrics will submit all June online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of July. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so June 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, June 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 3-4 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript. 

ASHA CEUs: Attendees must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs:

  • Current ASHA Member

If an attendee is not an ASHA member or CCC holder but meets any of the above criteria, they may inform the ASHA CE Registry of their eligibility by visiting this site.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.
