In order to achieve ASHA Approved CE Provider status, The Children's Center 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.  

“Our approval as an ASHA Approved CE Provider demonstrates our strong commitment to meeting ASHA CEB's standards when we offer CE courses for speech-language pathologists and audiologists,” said Children's Center Director Sarah Case-Price. “We are proud to be recognized by such a prestigious organization as ASHA and pleased to be one of the elite group of organizations that meets ASHA CEB standards for offering exemplary continuing education courses.”
