The Union County Speech, Language & Hearing Association brings local speech and language pathologists and audiologists together in a professional yet casual setting. We provide an opportunity for professionals to network and become more educated on new and current information in our field. The Summit Speech School kindly offers their space to hold our programs. Despite our name, our members come from a number of counties, including Union, Somerset, Essex and Middlesex. We welcome anyone from New Jersey to join our organization.
FREE Membership October 2020 - May 2022
Thank you for your interest in attending the meetings and programs held by the Union County Speech, Language & Hearing Association. You’ll enjoy the opportunity to learn more about our field and network with other professionals. Overall, we feel the experience is invaluable to emerging and established professionals alike. We hold programs four times a year. We have a daytime session on a Saturday in October, and in March. During the months of December and May, we hold evening programs.
Executive functioning (EF) skills are the thinking skills that direct, regulate and monitor your thoughts, actions and emotions. Good executive skills allow you to navigate through life successfully by
helping you set goals for yourself, organize your behavior to meet these goals as well as focus and monitor your performance to ensure that you are on track to meet your goals. This talk presents a comprehensive overview of executive functioning, including the impact EF skills, or lack thereof, had during the pandemic and in a remote schooling environment. Additionally, ways to improve EF skills across the lifespan, from preschool to senior living will be discussed.
