Annual Convention

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.  Sessions, whenever possible, will utilize hands-on activities and simulations. Our intention is to provide practical tools and strategies for practicing clinicians that will translate into improving clinical outcomes.
