Our summer workshops this year held up the tradition of excellence we’ve seen in past years. We want to thank all who were in attendance. We would also like to thank the Scottish Rite Foundation of Kansas for the monetary support provided which helped fund the 2013 summer workshops. Sandi Gillam, Ph.D. was first to present with her informative two-day presentation titled, “SLPs and School-Based Practice: Curriculum-based Assessment and Interventions to support the Common Core.” Sandi was full of spirit during her presentation that highlighted the use of contextually based assessments
and educationally relevant interventions that meet evidence based
practice standards for vocabulary, syntax, narration, comprehension and
progress monitoring and service delivery options. The second half of the week Jennifer Taps Richard shared her presentation on “Beacons of Best Practice: Sound Articulation Treatment.” The days focused on EBP of the complexity approach and motor learning techniques.
FHSU NSSHLA members are a very active and dedicated group of students in the Department of Communication Disorders, consisting of undergraduate and graduate students. Members meet at least once a month to plan fun activities and fundraisers and they also host activities for the FHSU student body and the community. To kick off the school year, NSSLHA had a booth at the annual "back-to-school picnic" to inform new students about the organization. Members participate in various fundraising activities which include selling t-shirts at the annual Oktoberfest. Money raised from the fundraisers makes it possible for students to attend the 2013 KSHA Conference in Topeka, KS and the 2013 ASHA Convention in Chicago, IL. The NSSLHA group is also organizing the sale of "speech-language pathology" specific sweatshirts and cardigans for students and faculty in the department. Some upcoming events include a movie night featuring “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” on October 11th and a Jeopardy night focused on comprehensive exam topics on October 24th. The NSSLHA members will also sponsor the Ellis County Spelling Bee in January.
We enjoy hearing from all of our alumni on the latest happenings in your lives. Please feel free to email information to any faculty or staff member or firstname.lastname@example.org.
