Continuing Professional Education

AAIDD is pleased to be providing continuing professional education in psychology and social work to interested participants during many of the pre conference sessions at this year’s Annual Meeting. To locate sessions approved for psychology and social work continuing professional education please visit the pre-conference sessions   and post-conference sessions pages. 

All attendees who pre-register for continuing professional education will receive an attendance card upon check-in along with the regular registration materials.

To receive credit you must have a room monitor sign off on your attendance card at the end of each pre- conference session you attend. You must also complete an evaluation which is to be handed in at registration. Failure to complete both of these requirements will result in no continuing education award for that session. To receive credit for any session you must participate in the session in its entirety. Partial credit will not be awarded to participants who choose to float between sessions.

Certificates will be mailed to participants who fulfill all necessary requirements for credit following the conference.

CEU Fee $30
