SHAV Conference 2017
This past weekend, at the annual Speech Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) Conference in Richmond, I had the privilege of networking with professionals and attending multiple sessions relevant to my career interests. It was inspiring and exciting to be surrounded by so many energized people who share the same interests I do and it was nice to be able to see my old Longwood professors and Longwood Alumni. The session I enjoyed the most was about integrating Augmentative and Alternative Communication with children who have Apraxia of Speech. I plan to use this new knowledge to help my clients. I look forward to meeting up with my peers and other professionals again at the SHAV conference next year!
American Speech Hearing Association Convention
This past weekend, at the annual American Speech Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Philadelphia I had the privilege of presenting two posters. In-between presenting my posters, I had time to go to multiple sessions, explore the overwhelming exhibit hall, talk to future possible employers about my professional interests, and even explore some of Philadelphia. It was inspiring and exciting to be surrounded by so many energized people who share the same interests I do. It was also encouraging to listen to experienced professionals talk about specific articulation therapy targets that I struggle treating at my externship placement. I learned new strategies to help 3rd grade and older students acquire the challenging “r” sound. I look forward to implementing these new strategies with my clients. I will be sure to attend the ASHA convention again in the near future!
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Speech Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) annual conference. During the conference, I was able to attend numerous sessions ranging from alternative augmentative communication assessment to using famous works of art to facilitate literacy. At SHAV, I was also given the opportunity to present my research on the sound intensity levels among spectators at Longwood men’s basketball games. It was immensely rewarding to be able to share my research with my peers and other interested professionals in this fascinating field. My experience at SHAV also allowed me to meet and connect with many professionals and possible future employers. I am so grateful for this opportunity.
SHAV Conference, 2015
This weekend, I was fortunate to attend the 2015 Speech Hearing Association of Virginia conference in Richmond. I talked to many venders and sat in some of the sessions. During one of the most informative sessions I attended, I learned about using structured teaching to build communication in students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It was wonderful to talk to and learn from so many different people who are passionate about such a rewarding field. I look forward to using all of the new information I learned this weekend with my future clients.
