Students share speech-language pathology career path during Great American Teach-In

Students participate in the Great American Teach In

Graduate students in the USF chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) visited Sligh Middle School for the Great American Teach-In on Nov. 17. NSSLHA members shared information on what a career in speech-language pathology entails through a PowerPoint presentation and multiple hands-on small-group activities.

Students were able to communicate with each other using augmentative and alternative communication (e.g apps, visuals and gestures) and trial compensatory feeding strategies (e.g thickened water). Events like these are vital to the  profession because they allow students to explore the career of speech-language pathology at an early age.
