Frequently Asked Questions
The following represents some of the more common questions regarding the Stuttering Foundation online CEU programs.
What are CEUs?
"CEUs" is an abbreviation for continuing education units. They represent units of time associated with taking a course or self-study program. They are measured in fractions of time; one hour = 0.10 CEU.
Are the CEUs approved by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association?
Yes. Stuttering Foundation of America is an approved Continuing Education provider by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
How do I complete an online CEU course?
To complete an online CEU course from the Stuttering Foundation, you must first choose the course you're interested in and then register and pay the fee for the course. Once you've registered and paid, simply click on the link next to the course listing and it will open up for you. You can exit the course at any time and come back to it later; you do not have to complete the course in one sitting. Once you've watched and/or read all information associated with your course, you will take a brief quiz over the course content. You may not exit the test and come back to it later; once you begin the test it must be completed. You must score at least an 80% in order to earn credit for the course.
How do a pay for an online CEU course?
You can pay for the course by entering your credit card information into our secure site. Stuttering Foundation accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and PayPal.
Will more online CEU courses be added?
Yes. The Stuttering Foundation has12 additional self-study courses that are in the process of being added for online delivery. We also have several new courses in development. Check back frequently to see what new courses are available!
How are online CEU courses different from other CEU courses offered by the Stuttering Foundation?
Online courses offer several advantages, such as the ability to (1) learn whether you've successfully passed the course immediately after taking the quiz, (2) print a completion certificate immediately, (3) review what courses you've already taken by checking your online transcript, and (4) reprinting lost certificates of completion at a later time. To order a hard copy of a DVD or book used in the course, please visit our eStore at www.StutteringHelp.org.
Once I earn my CEUs, how do I get my CEUs listed in the ASHA registry?
The Stuttering Foundation reports course completion to ASHA at the end of each month. ASHA reviews the course reports and makes the final determination regarding an individual's ability to have CEUs recorded on his or her ASHA registry transcript.
I have completed my CEU courses, why have they not yet been reported to ASHA?
Stuttering Foundation only submits reports to ASHA at the end of each month. From the time that the report reaches the ASHA national office, the staff there has 45 days to enter the information into an individual's ASHA continuing education transcript. This timeline is one reason to make sure you print and save your certificate of completion.
Who keeps track of how many CEUs have been awarded?
Tracking how many CEUs have been awarded is your responsibility. If you choose to do so, you can pay ASHA's Continuing Education Registry to have ASHA track your CEUs (not just for Stuttering Foundation courses, but for all ASHA-approved courses you participate in.) For more information on the ASHA CE Registry, go to http://www.asha.org/ce/.
Do I have to be an ASHA member to have CEUs listed in the ASHA registry?
How many CEUs are offered for each course?
The number of CEUs offered for each course varies based on how long it takes to complete the course.
Can I start a CEU course and come back to it later?
Yes. However, once you start the test, you must complete it at that time.
Will I get a certificate of completion once I'm done with the course?
Yes. As soon as you've finished the course, including taking the quiz and earning at least an 80%, you can immediately generate a certificate by clicking on the appropriate link.
I have misplaced my completion certificate, how do I print another certificate?
Log back onto www.stutteringceus.org, then select "Transcript" from the menu options at the top of the page. Once you've selected this option, you will see the transcript of all courses you've taken from www.stutteringceus.org and have the option of printing any of your certificates of completion.
How long will I have access to the video and CEU materials once I register and pay for the course?
One year, unless the course expires prior to one year from the date you purchase it. Refer to the course catalog to find out the expiration date of the course that you're interested in taking.
Do you offer a discount for school districts, companies, and other organizations?
Yes. If your organization would like to have multiple members take a course, please contact the Stuttering Foundation directly at 800-992-9392 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss pricing options.
How long will my transcripts be listed online?
Each course you've taken will appear on your transcript until the course is no longer offered. Courses do expire so please make sure to print a hard copy of your completion certificate.
What if I need help completing the course?
The Stuttering Foundation is unable to provide help - clarifying content or quiz questions - to individuals taking a course. Careful attention to course content will ensure a successful outcome.
What if I have questions about technical issues?
If you need technical support, email email@example.com
and a Stuttering CEU support member will be back with you within one business day.
What are the system requirements for taking an online CEU course?
These CEU programs run on a PC or a Mac with a standard web-browser (MS Explorer 7+, Firefox 2+, Chrome, Safari, Opera) with a dedicated Internet connection. Courses require Adobe Flash (Download here
) and Adobe PDF Reader (Download here
) for ebooks and downloadable study materials.
Can the CEUs be valid in other countries such as Canada?
Canada recognizes ASHA CEUs, but this may not be true in other countries. It is best to contact your country's accrediting body and ask whether it accepts ASHA-approved CEUs.
