If you already have an account, click the My Professions tab on your account dashboard. Then click the profession listed. A box will open (pictured below) where you can edit your state license information as well as your ASHA reporting options.

Are your courses accepted at my school? Can I receive CEUs (Continuing Education Credits) or clock hours?

Because each district has its own policies regarding course eligibility, always double-check with your district or department of education regarding eligibility for credit before enrolling in a course. Continuing education is the final decision of your school district, continuing education committee or other relevant authority. PDR does not guarantee acceptance by your school, district or licensing authority.
