Is the content approved for ASHA CEUs?

Hello Cassandra,
Earlier this year you asked about ASHA credits for our online course Accessible Literacy for Early Readers: Students Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Deafblind.
 
 
We are pleased to report that ASHA has awarded 2.8 ASHA CEUs for our Winter 2017 course. Please also note that a 6th week has been added. The course will run Feb 6 - March 17 and meets entirely online. We will have an updated syllabus to include that 6th week in a few months, when registration opens.
 
Thanks for your interest. We look forward to learning with you,
Robin

Will all sessions be available at the beginning of the course so that we may possibly move along at our own pace as long as we are finished by the July 24th date? I am asking because I have a vacation week during this time period.

Sessions open each week in order to keep the class working together. There are weekly due dates, and the syllabus will help you plan ahead.

As long as you have an Internet connection, you will be able to participate on schedule.

Will the required readings be given to us or must we buy the books (Braille Literacy, Remarkable Conversations etc.)?

Posted by RSittenMay 16, 2016

Only the sections of Remarkable Conversations noted in the syllabus will be provided. We will update the registration information to provide information for ordering the other texts. Thanks for raising this question. Robin

We hope to offer this class with ASHA CEUs in the future!

The syllabus and text show a heavy emphasis on braille aspects of literacy. How much of the course content will focus on low vision literacy (we only have low vision deaf blind students)?

Posted by Perkins eLearningMay 25, 2016

All of the sessions do address low vision.  The great thing about the assignments in this course is that they were designed so that the participants could complete the assignments/projects to be used with a child that they are currently working with.  That child could be deafblind, blind or have low vision.

Hope this helps!

I have the Beginning with Braille: Firsthand Experiences with a Balanced Approach to Literacy, but it's the first edition. Do you feel that this is sufficient or has the information significantly changed between the first and second editions? Thank you!

The reading selections from the Swenson text, 2nd edition will be
pg 71 “Creating Books for and With Children… through “Collaborative Pictures During Early Writing Activities,” pg 81

and pg 332 “The Creative Aspect: Adapting Print Class Room materials… through the end of Creating tactile Graphics, including several sidebars and the cricket activity.

Does this line up with sections in your earlier version?
