SHAV Conference 2015
I was afforded the opportunity to attend the Speech Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) 2015 conference. During this conference I was able to attend multiple sessions ranging from facilitating language with pre-school children with hearing loss, understanding common medical diagnoses and their relationship to swallowing disorders, treatment and evaluation of students with autism, and selecting an appropriate communication method for students with alternative and augmentative communication needs. At SHAV, I was also given the opportunity to interact with experienced speech-language pathologists within the area and to speak with local employers. SHAV allowed me to not only expand upon the knowledge I have gained at Longwood University, but it also allowed me to begin connecting with employers and working speech-language pathologists, which I hope will become valuable resources and connections following my graduation this coming May.
