My name is Jaclyn Schiemer and I will be a second year speech-language pathology student in Fall 2013. I look forward to serving as president of URI's student speech-language hearing group with Kristy Wallace (Vice President, graduate student), Lexi Caruso (Treasurer, graduate student), Mary Loveley (Secretary, undergraduate student), and Kristen Troy (Historian, graduate student). We hope to reinvigorate the organization next academic year with meetings that cater to the needs of both undergraduate and graduate students, community service opportunities that are relevant to the major, and fundraising events for new clinic activities. We have many great ideas and hope to work as a team with entire communicative disorders student body.
The Department of Communicative Disorders is pleased to announce that Dr. Elizabeth Crais, of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, will be our first guest speaker of the 2015-2016 academic year. The title of her talk is "Intervention for Children from Birth to Five with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Please join us.
Her talk will take place on Monday, October 5th from 7-9 pm in CBLS 100.
