Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Special Learning, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the autism community, announced today that it will exhibit at the 2012 American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention scheduled for Nov. 15 through 17, 2012, at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta.
In partnership with Step By Step, a highly regarded nonprofit autism treatment center serving children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, Special Learning will host an exhibit at the conference, in booth #244. Participating in the conference allows Special Learning the opportunity to continue to raise its reputation as a major provider of mobile applications and educational resources with the highest quality service, training and educational programs for individuals affected by ASD.
The ASHA Convention is considered the premier annual event for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language and hearing scientists. It brings together more than 12,000 attendees annually and provides them with a once-a-year opportunity to learn about the latest evidence-based research in the field. The convention also offers the opportunity for conference attendees to upgrade their clinical skills, improve their technique and gain new tools and resources to become a better provider while advancing their career at the same time.
In September, Special Learning was approved as a continuing education provider by the Continuing Education Board of ASHA. After careful consideration of its stringent guidelines, ASHA gave its commendation to Special Learning. ASHA-approved continuing education providers such as Special Learning are the only organizations authorized to offer continuing education courses for audiologists and speech-language pathologists for ASHA continuing education units.
“As we continue to build our local and national brand, we’re privileged to associate and align with such great partners as the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association to serve the needs of those affected by autism spectrum disorder,” said Karen Chung, founder and president of Special Learning. “We are dedicated to meeting the training and education needs of professionals in the speech and language community who continue to strive for better outcomes and treatment options for the autism community.”
Special Learning is among only 550 organizations, which includes its sister organization Step By Step, to join ASHA from around the world that have had their organizational process and courses reviewed and approved by the organization’s experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.
