Introduction to Ethics: ISHA
The Illinois Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Practice Act now requires the completion of one hour of continuing education in the area of ethics. In response to this requirement, ISHA produced a one hour video designed to highlight strategies necessary to make ethical decisions. If you paid your 2020 ISHA membership dues you receive the video for free. This course is offered for professional development credit. Use this link to the ISHA website for specifics.

The Illinois Speech-Language-Hearing Association recently provided quick access to an interactive sexual harassment prevention training course from Traliant to help you fulfill this one hour requirement. If you paid your 2020 ISHA membership dues you receive the video for $22. This course is offered for professional development credit. Use this link to the ISHA website for specifics.
