Why Attend?

Here's what previous attendees had to say:

"This conference was fabulous! I loved that we had opportunities to go deep in related sessions or to hit the surface of a topic so that we could self-study later."
Jerri Smith, MCD, CCC-SLP
"Having all three conferences combined was wonderful, given I work in a pediatric private practice that draws from all three fields. The speakers were fantastic... Thanks for a great conference. I will be attending again!"
Sandra Wilton, MS, CCC-SLP
