Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia Conference 2016
I took the wonderful opportunity to attend the 2016 Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) conference held in Chantilly, Virginia. While at the conference, I heard many valuable presentations discussing topics related to speech-language pathology. There were several sessions offered at the same time so it was difficult to select sessions to attend. Most of the sessions I attended focused on articulation therapy, therapy for individuals with autism, and literacy strategies for school-aged children. I learned about resources that can be used in future therapy sessions. During one session, I actually made one manipulative that I was able to take home. I also visited several booths pertaining to employment opportunities as well as booths displaying various products that could be purchased and used during therapy. This was my first time attending a SHAV conference and I hope to be able to attend each year in the future!
