This past week, I haIMG_0854d the pleasure of attending the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) conference. Over three days, the conference had a large variety of sessions for many different areas within the field of speech-language pathology. I am currently interested in pursuing a career in pediatric dysphagia and was very excited to attend several sessions related to this topic. In addition to sessions about dysphagia, I attended sessions about treatment for language, articulation, and fluency. By attending this conference, I was able to augment my knowledge from my graduate program about different evidence-based therapy options. I was also able to network with speech-language pathologists and graduate students from other universities.

I truly enjoyed the experience of attending this conference and the knowledge gained from the professionals.
