Last week, Salus University’s Occupational Therapy (OT) and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) students participated in Arcadia University’s Health Career Summer Academy. The summer academy aims to introduce middle school students to a variety of health professions and discuss pathways to achieve their future career goals.
The Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) Department co-hosted a special Continuing Education workshop with The Hanen Centre entitled, “It Takes Two to Talk®- The Hanen Program® for Parents of Children with Language Delay.”
Dr. Kyomi Gregory, assistant professor in the College of Education and Rehabilitation’s Speech-Language Pathology program, was recently selected to participate in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Pathways Program.
Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) student Claire Halberstadt ’18 remembers first looking at an X-ray image’s indecipherable haze of black, white and various shades of gray, and thinking, “What am I looking at?” Now after a semester in Randy Dubin’s, MA, CCC-SLP, class, she can not only confidently identify various structures of the throat used in swallowing, but also recommend treatment plans for those with swallowing disorders, clinically known as dysphagia.
On July 1, 2015, Salus University added another means of serving the local community with the opening of the Speech-Language Institute (SLI), housed on the University’s Elkins Park campus.
