FIRST SCHOOL SYMPOSIUM ON “HOT TOPICS IN SPEECH, LANGUAGE, AND HEARING: FROM THE RESEARCH LAB TO THE CLINIC, AND THE OTHER WAY AROUND”

The School is excited to announce its first symposium, titled “Hot Topics in Speech, Language, and Hearing: From the Research Lab to the clinic, and the Other Way Around”. The symposium will be held on April 1st, 2017 (9:00 am – 4:30 pm) in the Friedman Building on the Vancouver Point Grey Campus.

Planned activities include two parallel sessions in the morning and two in the afternoon, given by School faculty (Dr. May Bernhardt, Dr. Sig Soli, Dr. Navid Shahnaz, and Ms. Eavan Sinden) on topics that are of high interest among clinicians: clinical practice in a multicultural and multilingual world, silent hearing loss, and counselling skills development. Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions about research questions with School faculty.
