Special Learning’s exhibit at the conference will continue to establish the organization as a leading provider of mobile technology solutions and educational resources for members of the autism community.

Chicago, IL November 13, 2012

Special Learning, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the autism community, announced today that it will exhibit at the 2012 American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention scheduled for Nov. 15 through 17, 2012, at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta.

In partnership with Step By Step, a highly regarded nonprofit autism treatment center serving children, adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, Special Learning will host an exhibit at the conference, in booth #244. Participating in the conference allows Special Learning the opportunity to continue to raise its reputation as a major provider of mobile applications and educational resources with the highest quality service, training and educational programs for individuals affected by ASD.

The ASHA Convention is considered the premier annual event for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language and hearing scientists. It brings together more than 12,000 attendees annually and provides them with a once-a-year opportunity to learn about the latest evidence-based research in the field. The convention also offers the opportunity for conference attendees to upgrade their clinical skills, improve their technique and gain new tools and resources to become a better provider while advancing their career at the same time.

In September, Special Learning was approved as a continuing education provider by the Continuing Education Board of ASHA. After careful consideration of its stringent guidelines, ASHA gave its commendation to Special Learning. ASHA-approved continuing education providers such as Special Learning are the only organizations authorized to offer continuing education courses for audiologists and speech-language pathologists for ASHA continuing education units.

“As we continue to build our local and national brand, we’re privileged to associate and align with such great partners as the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association to serve the needs of those affected by autism spectrum disorder,” said Karen Chung, founder and president of Special Learning. “We are dedicated to meeting the training and education needs of professionals in the speech and language community who continue to strive for better outcomes and treatment options for the autism community.”

Special Learning is among only 550 organizations, which includes its sister organization Step By Step, to join ASHA from around the world that have had their organizational process and courses reviewed and approved by the organization’s experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.

Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
