Welcome to the Advanced Learning Center!

How It Works

The ABCLLD Advanced Learning Center is designed to provide you with advanced professional development opportunities. You can choose and take courses designed to build your skills, further your expertise, and meet your intermediate or advanced continuing education needs at your leisure 24/7. The ABCLLD has partnered with SpeechPathology.com to offer these Advanced Learning Center courses.

Continuing education opportunities include both live and recorded webinars. All courses presented in partnership with ABCLLD are intermediate or advanced and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The ABCLLD provides courses in the Advanced Learning Center as a convenience, but these courses are NOT required for board certification or for maintaining specialty certification.
