The Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA) is approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) (the State Licensing Board) to sponsor continuing education activities in speech-language pathology and audiology. Continuing education credits are available when you attend the TSHA 2024 Annual Convention under certain stipulated conditions.

Verification for TSHA or ASHA credit is included with all member professionals (Active, Associate, Life) and non-member professionals.

Please note: Attendees registered under the Student Registration Rate are not eligible for TSHA CEs or ASHA CEUs however can request a certificate of attendance. If you are a graduate student who needs CE credits to renew your license or if you are interested in earning CEUs please register at the Professional Full Conference Rate.

Online CE Verification Process

All Convention CE reporting is done online. You should keep a personal record of the sessions you attend. You will log into TSHA’s secure website and enter each completed session. You may return to the website as many times as you like to add more sessions or edit your session list. Completed sessions can only be entered at the conclusion of a session. All sessions must be attended in their entirety. No partial credit will be tabulated for attendance.

CEs are awarded to participants as they are noted in the on-site program and mobile app. If sessions overlap in the program, they cannot be entered for credit. If a session is shorter than stated in the program, credit is awarded as it is stated in the program. There are NO exceptions to these rules. 

All course reporting will be completed in the Evaluation page, available through the App or Website starting on the first day of the convention. In order to attain CEU credit, you will need to finish your evaluations for every course you participate in, along with an overall conference evaluation. A link will be provided on this page beginning the day of the convention.

Immediately upon completion of your overall evaluation, you will receive the option to download your certificate of attendance. For non-members, this serves as the sole permanent record of your participation.

We recommend saving a copy of this certificate, regardless of your present membership status. You must report all your Convention continuing education activities by March 22, 2024. 

Please keep in mind that you will be provided with a single certificate, which will print the evaluations and credit totals for each session you attended.
