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 2021

WONDERFUL WEBSITES WITH PRACTICAL THERAPY TIPS
This hands-on course is designed to meet the needs of speech-language pathologists serving school-age children and adolescents with various communication difficulties by providing them with original and exciting ways to motivate and teach students. Creative ideas will be shared on how to put new spins on traditional speech-language therapy by introducing various websites that can be used as fun and functional digital therapy materials. Participants will be involved in discussions related to skills and foundational knowledge.
