Penn State faculty and students are excited to be at the PSHA 2017 conference, “Serve, Lead, Inspire”! We’ll see you soon!
Featuring the collaborative work of Tara O’Neill and Kelsey Mandak and cross-disciplinary faculty mentors/co-authors to enhance the abilities of SLPs working with children who have complex communication needs and their families with AAC interventions aligned with Family Systems Theory.
Thanks to Ashley McCoy (SPLED Doctoral Candidate) for her presentation on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and AAC.
The program specific to PhD scholars has been designed to be comprehensive and provide focused, individualized, direct experiences across education (coursework and teaching), research, and leadership skills. There is a deep commitment to the value of mentorship throughout each of these areas and all levels of learning.
Congratulations to April Yorke who successfully defended her dissertation
“Research shows that children with communication challenges do best when introduced to augmentative and alternative communication as early as 12 months.”
