The professions of speech-language pathology and audiology have undergone considerable change since the days of speech correctionists and the use of early audiometers. The pace of that change is rapidly increasing with iPads and smartphones being commonplace. The prevalence of digital technology for hearing aids, as well as diagnostic instrumentation that can provide instant access to a multitude of tests and therapeutic materials is impacting the clinician in ways that we never imagined just a decade ago.
The focus of the 2015 Convention will be on the use of cutting-edge technology in speech-language pathology and audiology and how it can enhance our capabilities as clinicians and improve our efficiency and effectiveness. Many sessions will utilize hands-on activities and simulations, providing practical tools and strategies for practicing clinicians that will translate into improving clinical outcomes.
Join us April 23-25, 2015, in Rochester, a city renowned for its cutting edge technology.
