Hello SCCSHA members! I hope that this newsletter finds you all well. Thank you to those who attended our winter workshop, “Using Apps in Context” with Sean Sweeney. The workshop was engaging and the content easily applicable within many settings.
Our Spring Luncheon and 3-hour workshop is quickly approaching. We will be back at the Villages in San Jose on Friday, May 24, 2019. This year, we welcome Dr. Jeannene M. Ward-Lonergan and Dr. Robert A. Pieretti. They will be presenting on the connection between language, literacy, dyslexia, and the SLP’s role. At our Spring Luncheon the slate of nominated and appointed SCCSHA officers for the 2019-2020 year will be presented. Active and retiree members attending the luncheon are eligible to vote on the presented slate.
Please save October 4, 2019 for our Fall Workshop. Sarah Ward will be presenting on Executive Function Skills and Strategies for SLPs and associated professionals, grades PreK-12. This workshop will take place at the Los Gatos Lodge. Stay tuned for further details in our Fall 2019 newsletter.
It has been a pleasure working with you all this last year. Thank you for your continued support of and membership with SCCSHA. It is always so inspiring and energizing to reconnect at our events and hear about the wonderful work being done within the profession. I would also like to thank our wonderful board members for their continued dedication and service to our organization. I have learned so much working alongside such a caring and accomplished group of SLPs. Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you on May 24th.
