“As a case manager, I utilize the information to support both parents and professionals to help the students. I learn a lot that I can directly apply, and the resources are phenomenal. I am very impressed by the positive energy of everyone there!”



Workshops

Workshop capacity may be limited, and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must stay for the entire session (and be documented doing so) to earn credits.


Department of Education

Registrants can earn up to 12 New Jersey Department of Education professional development hours. Certificates may be picked up in the last workshop session of each day which can also be used as general attendance documentation for other employers. There is no charge for DOE credits.

Overnight Waiver

The Department of Education has again approved an overnight travel waiver for the Autism New Jersey Annual Conference. This means that districts can reimburse staff for their overnight travel expenses on Thursday, Oct. 19th if their commute exceeds 50 miles. Download the waiver>>


CE Payment

For 2017, we are piloting a flat fee payment option. If you wish to pay for your credits in advance, you may do so for a nonrefundable $50 fee per day, regardless of the number of CE credits you earn onsite. If you register online, the link to prepay for CE will be in your registration confirmation email. If you use the printed registration form, the option is there to pay everything at once. [All of the attendance and documentation rules must still be followed in order to earn credits, but no further payment will be due.]

If you prefer, you may instead pay $15 per workshop onsite as in past years. The fee is still waived for Silver and Gold level members. BACB CEUs will be processed through the CEUHelper mobile app. ASHA fees are again covered by a sponsorship from PECS.


CEUHelper Mobile App

BACB documentation will be done through the CEUHelper app this year. This includes signing in and out as well as certificate delivery. We strongly encourage you to download it before you arrive. Get familiar with CEUHelper by completing the following:

1. Create a CEUHelper account. You will login to this account to sign in and out of each workshop and to receive your certificate(s). 

2. Download the CEUHelper app from the app store for your smartphone operating system. Unfortunately, CEUHelper is not available for Windows-operated smartphones (paper documentation will be available).

3. Watch CEUHelper's tutorial on how to use the app.  This will explain how you will use the app during and after the conference.

*Please note that only BCBA CEUs will be processed through CEUHelper. If you are also earning other CE credits, you must complete that paperwork. A second fee will not be charged.
