I had the pleasure of attending the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia’s annual conference a few weeks ago. This was my first time attending as a graduate student, and I was able to take away valuable information from the conference. I attended sessions about Autism, AAC devices, and audiology. These sessions were very informative and allowed me to gain valuable knowledge, which will be helpful in my future career. I was even able to help one of my professors during her presentation demonstrate my knowledge of tympanometry (see picture). I am so thankful for Longwood’s Professional and Graduate Studies for allowing me this opportunity for professional development.
