2015SHAVI attended the 2015 Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia Conference on Thursday, March 26, 2015. It was my first conference as a graduate student at Longwood University, and I was grateful for the opportunity to attend. I was lucky enough to learn about communication apps and devices currently available. I then listened to a presentation about the effective use of interpreters in the field. Next, I found out information about feeding therapy for children who are “in the gray,” those children that are on the line of qualifying for speech services. Finally, I attended a session that taught speech-language pathologists how to use structured teaching to build communication in students with autism. I really enjoyed meeting a number of speech-language pathology professionals, and I look forward to attending the 2016 SHAV conference.
