In July, Speech Program Director Maryam Sadrzadeh attended a course called “Listening with Our Eyes, Ears, and Hearts.” The course was given by Carla Brooks and covered a number of topics related to autism spectrum disorders. In addition, Maryam took two online courses in June on Central Auditory Processing Disorders ((C)APD). The courses included screening tools, identifying children at risk for (C)APD, and auditory skill assessment techniques.
Maryam is incredibly proud of the speech teams grand round guest speakers over the past months. Speakers included Carla Brooks, CCC-SLP; Shelley Mackaman, Ph.D.; and Jacqueline Rosquita, OT. They brought expertise in the areas of autism spectrum disorder, social and emotional development of children, and sensory integration and motor development to the group.
