There are a lot of fees and expenses that come with being an SLP - ASHA dues, state licensure, conferences, certifications, travel, materials, copious amounts of coffee, etc. I don't know about you, but I'd rather save my money for more important things, like this, this, and this.
I recently decided to go for my ACE award, because, why not? If you've never heard of the ACE, here is the ASHA link. It's open to any SLP participating in the ASHA CEU registry who earns 7.0 CEUs within 36 months. CEUs don't always come cheap, so I've scrounged up all the freebie ones I can find. Let me know if you have another and I'll add it to the list!
