Pasadena Summer Quarterly Meeting - Tuesday, July 14th!

Hello Networkers,
Summer is in full swing and we are gearing up for our Pasadena Summer Quarterly Meeting hosted by Professional Child Development Associates (PCDA) and Anne Davis, SLP. 

We will be screening ASHA's July, free-to-all case studies course entitled, "An Overview of the AAC Assessment Process," presented in streaming video by Patricia Ourand, MS, CCC-SLP. We will watch, reflect, and discuss as a group on Tuesday, July 14th, which also happens to be Bastille Day. Come for the networking, stay for the French inspired snacks! And feel free to break out your red, white, and blue garb again when you join us.
Where:  PCDA, 620 N. Lake Ave, Pasadena, 91101
             Upstairs conference room
When:   Tuesday, July 14th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Who:     All interested! 
             Speech type people, OT people, teacher people, 
             parent people - FREE as always. Bring a colleague.

Please RSVP to no later than Sunday, July 12 so we can be sure there is a mini croissant (and a chair) with your name on it.

Course Description: As an SLP who understands language and speech production, you can do an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) assessment. Today more than ever, SLPs who work in all settings and across all ages need to be able to provide informed, client-centered recommendations for AAC services. But the number of options available and the variety of individual needs to consider can be overwhelming. Using video and case study discussions, Pat Ourand will guide you through a detailed assessment process to support you in making strong recommendations based on an individual’s specific needs to improve the patient’s ability to communicate. You will walk away with some sample assessment tools, a sample assessment write-up, and a list of useful web references.

P.S. One need not be an ASHA member to gain access to this course and watch it on your own at this LINK.
