When you complete one of our SPELL-Links Professional Development offerings, you’re provided with a Verification of Attendance Form showing the professional development hours (PDHs) earned. The form is accepted by many organizations, including the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as documentation of continuing education units for maintaining your certification. SPELL-Links / Learning By Design, Inc. does not submit your PDHs to ASHA. ASHA requires a member to maintain your own copy of the Verification of Attendance form and to report the PDHs earned on your Certification Maintenance Compliance Form. You can read more about maintaining your certification on ASHA’s website.
