 At the end of the 2010-2011 school year, the Placentino Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) received partial funding from the Holliston Education Foundation (HEF) for an intensive study grant. This provided the opportunity to attend the annual American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in San Diego, CA in November, 2011. At the convention, we were able to attend a variety of informative sessions on new technology, resources, research, and ideas to use for treatment.

Now, it is our turn to share! Below are attachments and links for some of the sessions that we attended. Please use any of these resources, and feel free to contact us with further questions!

Thanks for looking!
