  • 8 continuing legal education credits for attorneys at $1.50 per CLE;
  • 10 continuing education units for rehabilitation counselors at no cost;

“For many people with a disability or mental health diagnosis, a trained professional is a necessity for basic life functions, but also for advancements in education, health care, employment, and in defense of their rights,” Miller said. “That’s why we prioritize offering continuing education credits at our summit and we look forward to everyone experiencing our complete program.”
