This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Speech Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) annual conference. During the conference, I was able to attend numerous sessions ranging from alternative augmentative communication assessment to using famous works of art to facilitate literacy. At SHAV, I was also given the opportunity to present my research on the sound intensity levels among spectators at Longwood men’s basketball games. It was immensely rewarding to be able to share my research with my peers and other interested professionals in this fascinating field. My experience at SHAV also allowed me to meet and connect with many professionals and possible future employers. I am so grateful for this opportunity.
