ASHA CEUs are only for speech-language pathologists who use the ASHA CE Registry to track continuing education hours and want hours from this course reported to ASHA. We do not report continuing education hours to other organizations.

  • If you are not an SLP, you don’t need to complete this process.
  • If you do not use the ASHA CE Registry, you do not need to pay the processing fee or submit codes. Use the Fillable Completion Certificate (link to come) to document your hours. Do not count hours for organizational meetings. This certificate is suitable for state license renewal and ASHA recertification.


Please use the Videos and Timings (link to come) document to identify which videos are available for ASHA CEUs. ASHA CEUs will be awarded based on the total minutes of eligible videos you watch rounded down to the nearest ½ hour. Partial credit is available. Credit is only given for videos watched to the end. Credit is only given for videos watched during the ASHA CEU course dates.

Please contact Louise Pinkerton at [email protected] if you have questions about which videos are eligible.


Vocology is a field that encompasses voice habilitation and rehabilitation, medical and performance knowledge, and new research across these areas. Contemporary symposia and focused courses disseminate this information across multiple voice disciplines and build connections across professions. The Pan American Vocology Symposium and regular course offerings fulfill this need.


As a result of this activity, participants will be able to…

  • Summarize basic vocal anatomy and physiology.
  • Summarize basic physics and acoustics of voice and how they are measured.
  • Describe the relationship between typical and atypical voice production and some ways in which it is measured and evaluated.
  • Summarize strategies and techniques for voice habilitation and rehabilitation.
  • Demonstrate various voice therapy and voice teaching techniques for a variety of voice use areas.
  • Describe recent clinical, scientific and technological advances related to the study of voice.
  • Describe interdisciplinary clinical and research information about voice production, evaluation and treatment.
  • Describe current issues in the professional voice community, also including ethics for singing teachers and voice rehabilitation.
