ASHA 2015!

I had the opportunity to attend the American Speech-Language-Hearing (ASHA) Convention this year in Denver. From the exhibit hall to the seminars, it was SLP overload!

                                        Colorado Convention Center

There were so many seminars to choose from! I ended up attending ones on AAC, Social Thinking, utilizing iPad apps in therapy, and dysphagia. If you are interested in any of these topics, check out these links/resources:

   Social Thinking Resources
   Article on AAC in Children with Developmental Disabilities 

Feeding Interventions for Children with Cerebral Palsy: A Review of the Evidence

ASHA store 

The exhibit hall was a "speechie's" dream! Various companies featured new products and gave out awesome freebies (thanks for the great bag, Super Duper)!

There were opportunities to chat with exhibitors. Here are some links to interesting products/companies:
