IMG_2835This 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.
