The 39th Annual NDSC Convention is being held in San Antonio, TX this summer and I am thrilled to announce I will be presenting: Reaching for the STARs: Speech Therapy and Research Working Together. Here’s a snippet of what to expect:
Do you ever wonder, “Why do some individuals with Down syndrome have clear speech and others don’t?” or “What can I do to help my child talk?” This course will take an in-depth look at the types of speech disorders that exist among children with Down syndrome, discuss the importance of evidence-based clinical treatment, and tackle common questions about using sign-language, oral-motor therapy, and assistive technology. Participants will receive practical suggestions to use at home including tools and activities.
The convention is being held at the beautiful JW Marriott Hill Country Resort. So if you haven’t planned your summer vacation yet – consider San Antonio! If you follow this blog and come to the convention, please make sure to introduce yourself and family. See y’all in Texas!
