Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.
ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.
Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.
ASHA CE Registry: During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.
ASHA CEUS: Attendees must meet at least one of the following conditions in order to be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs:
If an attendee is not an ASHA member or CCC holder but meets any of the above criteria, they may inform the ASHA CE Registry of their eligibility by visiting this site.

More Offerings by: Martha Burns
"The discussion on the fiber tracks in children with ASD were most beneficial as well as the connection to therapy." – J.H. (Feb. 2017)
"I enjoyed the new research presented regarding reasons for CAPD. The presenter presented material in an engaging and interesting manner. I was expecting more specific treatment coverage. The course was excellent. I enjoyed it." – M.A. (Jan. 2017)
"I found the ways to discuss how we can change the way brains make connections through therapy with other teachers and parents very helpful. I like that the course stretched my memory of neuroscience and gave foundations to the theories and methods we use." – L.W. (Dec. 2016)
"The research was current and informative. The presenter did an excellent job explaining complex info in an easy to understand format. I liked the large emphasis on neuroscience, but I expected more concerning treatment techniques for auditory processing, especially for children with ASD." – M.S. (Dec. 2016)
"I found the neurology behind justifying my auditory training tasks that are integrated into my language sessions to be helpful. Also, helpful was the way reading is related to auditory processing. I can now give suggestions to teachers to increase the underlying auditory processing related to reading. Martha Burns is so easy to follow. It's always such sensible training." – L.H. (Nov. 2016)
"I like that I can use this information immediately and apply my own materials to it. I have a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of auditory processing. I thought the 'how' was interesting." – L.O. (Oct. 2016)
"I appreciated understanding auditory processing in children with ASD." – C.H. (Sept. 2016)
"I liked the treatment techniques." – L.C. (Sept. 2016)
"I especially enjoyed the current information regarding how therapy changes the fiber tracts in the brain." – S.S. (Aug. 2016)
"Explaining how the neurochemicals can affect therapy was most beneficial. I liked the explanation of the diagrams and reiterating the information throughout the course." – L.B. (Aug. 2016)
"The discussion on the neuro A and P and their applications for linking auditory and visual modalities was good. I would have liked to see videos of examples with children." – E.P. (Aug. 2016)
"I liked hearing some of the newer research that has been conducted since I left grad school. I would have liked just a little more detail on practical treatment strategies." – G.H.V. (Aug. 2016)
"Going over how to include auditory training in therapy and coaching parents as home as part of what I already do for auditory processing therapy was really helpful." – S.M. (July 2016)
"I liked the review of the brain and function, specifically the fiber tracts." – S.P. (July 2016)
"I enjoyed the information about neuromodulators and how what we do influences chemical reactions which thus influences changes in the brain." – N.C. (July 2016)
"I love learning about the brain. I felt as if the studies were very explanatory in discussing the difficulties ASD may have." – L.H. (June 2016)
"I enjoyed learning the "why" of the brain development with the "how" it relates. I liked the mixed research with useful hands on information." – M.K. (June 2016)
"All of it was beneficial! Loved the neuroscience and the practical strategies." – N.B. (May 2016)
"I enjoyed the review of neurology regarding speech development and the information on the brain and developmental differences between typically developing children and those with ASD and APD." – S.M. (May 2016)
"I liked how the presenter explained the parts of the brain and their function...very clear and easier to follow than some other courses I have taken." – L.G. (May 2016)
"The research on fiber tracts and literacy was most helpful." – K.J. (Apr. 2016)
"I liked the discussions of what happens at the neurological level in children with ASD. I expected further discussions of treatment methods for children with ASD and auditory processing disorders." – A.E. (Apr. 2016)
"I liked the diagrams and explanations of functions of the brain." – P.R. (Mar. 2016)
"Understanding how literacy can improve auditory processing skills was really beneficial." – M.B. (Mar. 2016)
"The review of neurology helped me better understand the difficulties children with autism might face. I had never considered that therapy changed the structures of the brain." – G.P. (Mar. 2016)
"The presenter's ability to share scientific research in a meaningful way was appreciated." – R.M. (Mar. 2016)
"I appreciated the evidence based treatment for auditory processing and the neurology behind it." – Dr.H.H. (Feb. 2016)
"Thoroughly covered the topic for me. I feel I have a better understanding of CAPD and can help other staff members working with the client to better understand the underlying issues and the "why" we are using the therapy strategies." – J.G. (Feb. 2016)
"Dr. Burns provides a wonderful explanation of the neurological basis of APD - especially in CWA and its intervention. I expected more intervention strategies." – LA.L. (Feb. 2016)
"The volume of practical information which really built a foundation for understanding the basis of auditory processing, what impacts it and how to improve function was impressive!" – L.B. (Jan. 2016)
"I appreciated the discussion on Fiber Tracts. I expected more intervention strategies, though." – M.B.T. (Jan. 2016)
