  1. Buffalo Hearing & Speech Continuing Clinical Competency (CCC) Series

    Comments Off on Buffalo Hearing & Speech Continuing Clinical Competency (CCC) Series

    The CCC series was developed by Buffalo Hearing & Speech Center in 2001 to assist Western New York Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists in meeting the requirements of the New York State Continuing Competency Law and ASHA certification requirements. The workshop series was expanded in 2009 to include sessions for Special Educators, Occupational Therapists (AOTA approved), and Physical Therapists (New York State Approved). In 2016, the series was again expanded for Social Workers to assist with meeting new licensing requirements for Continuing Education enacted in 2015. Presentations emphasize hands-on, therapy-focused topics. This series is presented by practicing clinicians for clinicians – low on lecture and high on practical applications. Please join us for our CCC workshops that are being offered at a central location, during convenient after-work hours, and at a reasonable cost.
