This spring, I had the opportunity to attend the Speech Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) 2016 conference. During this conference, I attended multiple sessions about voice therapy, Autism, language, AAC devices, and embarking on my new career. In between sessions, I also had the opportunity to speak to speech-language pathologists and employers who work in different areas around Virginia. I am very thankful I took this opportunity not only to attend sessions that interested me, but also to meet and connect with speech-language pathologists and employers around Virginia. I believe the people I met at this conference will become valuable resources and connections as I get closer to graduation next year.
This past week, I had the pleasure of attending the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) conference. Over three days, the conference had a large variety of sessions for many different areas within the field of speech-language pathology. I am currently interested in pursuing a career in pediatric dysphagia and was very excited to attend several sessions related to this topic. In addition to sessions about dysphagia, I attended sessions about treatment for language, articulation, and fluency. By attending this conference, I was able to augment my knowledge from my graduate program about different evidence-based therapy options. I was also able to network with speech-language pathologists and graduate students from other universities.
I truly enjoyed the experience of attending this conference and the knowledge gained from the professionals.
