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.
Service delivery models have changed substantially over the last few years. While small pull-out groups are appropriate in many situations, keeping students in their classrooms has become a priority for school districts and many SLPs are being asked to incorporate the Integrated “Push-In” Model. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the principles of the Integrated “Push-In” Model. They will learn the methods and types of integrated therapy, as well as strategies to optimize this service delivery model to support students in the classroom. Participants will also learn about data collection methods, along with other collaborative strategies for successful speech/language therapy in the classroom.
