My name is Moriah Chapman and I am a second year graduate student in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Longwood University. I recently went to the American Speech-Langauge-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Philadelphia, PA. I along with other graduate students presented at the Poster session. Our poster was titled “Supporting Intelligibility in a Russian Speaking Adult with Repaired Cleft Palate”. We completed the research over the course of six months at the Speech, Hearing, and Language Services clinic at Longwood University.

During the ASHA Convention, I attended many lectures and sessions regarding different issues that were related to speech-language pathology. One session that I found helpful was about the correct production and remediation of the “r” sound. I found all of the sessions and lectures to be helpful and I gained some helpful information from them. Overall, I greatly enjoyed my experience at the ASHA Convention!
