Speech-Language Pathologist Summit

I am honored and excited to be part of the PESI Speech-Language Pathologist Summit happening later in November. I'm also thrilled to be pictured above next to my long time mentor, Carol Westby, who has a chapter in my upcoming book, Story Frames for Teaching Literacy coming in March 2021. Find out about her PESI Narrative Seminar HERE.

Many of us were saddened to hear that the annual American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) conference was not only canceled but that there would be no virtual replacement. In response, PESI brilliantly organized the SLP Summit to take place the same weekend, filling an important gap for those of us who need continuing education credit before the end of the year. 

My session is a two-hour presentation on Written Language: Roles, Responsibilities, and Ethical Considerations. It includes evidence based strategies for working with students with reading and writing challenges. ASHA now requires continuing education training in ethics specifically and so I hope this seminar will fill an important gap. My session is appropriate not only for SLPs but also for other educators who are curious about how SLPs can support students with dyslexia and other related reading and writing challenges.

Register for the summit HERE. Hope to see you there!
