If you have not heard of The Hanen Center, they are a non-profit organization who's mission is to provide parents, caregivers, and educators the training and knowledge to help children with language, social, and literacy skills.
Making Book Reading a Time for Interaction & Conversation and Making Words Sparkle for Preschool & Kindergarten Children: Bringing Vocabulary to Life During Book Reading and Daily Interactions. I have been incredibly impressed with the seminars. One thing I really love when being in live seminars or watching online, is when the speaker shows video clips from therapy sessions of the techniques they refer to in action. There have been plenty of video clips in the two seminars I viewed. These seminars are presented by an SLP so they are full of valuable information that will benefit our field. It was so nice being able to sit down on the couch with a cup of coffee while the baby napped and earn continuing education credits.
If you visit the online training portion of the website, you can check out the entire list of e-seminars available that address language delay, autism spectrum disorder, and language & literacy. Each seminar is worth 0.2 CEU's. You have the option to view them live or recorded. As a working mom, finding recorded options is always a plus!
Go check out their amazing resources, I would love to hear what you think of them.
