Continuing Education Information for Professionals

All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance documenting hours of participation in their course and available professional continuing education credits.  Please note that continuing education credit is only provided for direct seat time.  Course preparation including readings, lectures, and mentor-ship is not included in the CE hour or credit total.

Please CLICK HERE for Instructor Disclosures for the DIRFloortime® Training Program.  The course content is focused on a specific product or service (DIRFloortime®) and there will be no mention of other products or services.

The listing further down this page under the heading "DIRFloortime Training Program Continuing Education Information for DIR 101, 201, 202, 203, and 204" shows all of our continuing education provider approvals for those courses.  Conferences and other courses will generally have approval from the same CE providers, but that is not necessarily the case for every conference and you need to review the conference specific documentation and web pages.


Here are the courses and conferences that are currently being offered in addition to the DIRFloortime Training Program courses shown below:
  • Floortime with Adults Course

  • Continuing Education information on the 2018 ICDL Annual Conference on November 9 and 10 will be posted once we have finalized the agenda and submitted CEU applications.  It is our plan to provide continuing education credit for speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, counselors, music therapists, and possibly others.  Please check back soon for more information.

Psychology



The Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning maintains responsibility for this program and its content. 


Counseling

 

 
ICDL has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6733. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. ICDL is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.  DIR 101, 201, 202, 203, and 204 are all available for NBCC continuing education credits.  The number of CEUs for NBCC are based on the number of "seat" hours for the course.  In other words, the number of actual instruction hours.  For example, DIR 101 is 12 and DIR 201, 202, and 203 are all 28. 

Social Work

State of Illinois Early Intervention Professionals


Select DIR courses are approved for the Illinois Early Intervention Training Program.  Please check the Illinois Early Intervention Training website for currently approved courses.  ICDL must apply for each specific class.  If you are an IL EI professional that is interested in a course not listed, please e-mail ceu@icdl.com to inquire.  We may be able to add IL EI approval to the course you want to attend.  Please contact us in advance of the course beginning. 

Art Therapy

According to the ATR-BC Recertification Standards, ICDL training programs that are approved by one of the other national continuing education boards listed on this page, may be eligible for Art Therapy continuing education credit. These standards state, "CECs will be accepted for all courses or events that fit in the ATCB Eligible Content Areas and that are presented or approved by any of the following art therapy, mental health, or behavioral sciences entities: state licensing authority, national professional organization, or national credentialing body for continuing education credit."  It is the responsibility of each participant to determine if an ICDL program qualifies or not.  ICDL is not an approved ATR-BC continuing education provider and as such can not award ATR-BC continuing education credits directly.  However, we are approved by organizations like APA which may meet the above quoted standard. 


Other Professionals

ICDL is in the process of assessing our continuing education credentials and applying for continuing education credits for additional professionals.  Please contact ceu@icdl.com if you have any specific questions.
