School based speech and language pathologists have a very unique role. Not only do they support a child’s speech and language development but are immersed in the entire educational experience of a child. This unique role merits its very own annual conference in fact. This year, the annual ASHA schools conference 2013 happens next month in Long Beach, California from July 12-14. If you’re an SLP who likes to catch the rays and surf in California while improving your knowledge base, earn CEUs, network and learn about new cutting edge products, this conference is for you!
