SHAV Conference 2016
I recently had the pleasure of traveling to the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia Conference (SHAV) in Chantilly, VA. I spent two full days immersed in learning in various areas of Speech-Language Pathology. As you can tell by the photo, I was overly ecstatic to be able to wear a ribbon in honor of being a future clinician. As an attendee of the SHAV, I was able to select which sessions I wanted to attend from a pool of more than several dozen presenters. I chose to further my understanding and knowledge of the following topics: Autism, selecting core vocabulary for nonverbal students, the relation of swallowing to pneumonia, and so much more. I also learned a lot about how to become a clinician following graduate school. I was overjoyed that my entire cohort attended the conference, representing our University with 100% attendance. I am so thrilled to be part of a field that encourages continuing education; one in which Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists continuously strive to keep up with changing technology and research while always bettering themselves as service providers.
