I learned so much this week at the Kentucky Speech and Hearing Association’s Conference (KSHA)! Although, I have to admit.. I am very disappointed that Dynavox did not give out free pens, they used to have the best! They wrote so smoothly. haha
A quick re-cap of lectures I attended:
Assessment and Treatment of Non-English Speaking Students – very helpful, as I used the CELF-4 Spanish for the first time this year (with an interpreter, of course).
Severe Chronic Aphasia: Influence of Auditory Comprehension and Self-Awareness – my favorite session that I attended. It was very helpful!
Aging in Place: Supporting Individuals with Dementia – a great refresher course on the various stages of dementia
Comprehensive Overview of Swallowing Evaluation and Treatment – another great refresher course! Surprisingly, Dysphagia was one of my favorite classes in graduate school.
Intervention for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers with Autism – I have very little experience with early intervention so this course was also helpful.
As you can see, most of the lectures I attended were adult oriented. I’ve recently delved back into the adult world with a PRN job in a SNF. So I’ve been on a quest to re-activate all the knowledge I gathered in grad school! I’ve also been going through my notes and textbooks.. It’s all coming back to me! 🙂
Although my blog will be mostly geared towards elementary aged students I hope to also share my adult experiences along the way.
