I support the proposed changes.  I am pleased to see consideration being given to the elimination of differentiating between Type 1 and Type 2 continuing education hours.  This will lessen confusion noted by SLPs on the difference between each type.  Additionally, being able to "carryover" units from one year to the next is a definite move in the right direction.  Many SLPs participate in numerous continuing education activities which go beyond BASLP requirements so it will be great to see these hours being applied toward fulfilling continuing education to the upcoming year.
