Some of the great feedback we received about the event was:
The second edition of Dr. Behrman's textbook "Speech and Voice Science" was just released, published by Plural Publishing Inc.
Iona's Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association held their annual Strides for Speech Walk on campus in April and raised over $2,000 for the on-campus clinic and the SHARE organization. It was a fun day for the students, faculty, and their families despite the rain!
Suzanne Thompson was awarded the 2012 New York State Speech-Language- Hearing Association's Doctoral Scholarship Award for her research on distortion product otoacoustic emissions and the middle ear. The award was presented after Professor Thompson gave a lecture on her current research at the organization's annual convention in Saratoga, NY. Professor Dorothy Leone, MS, CCC-SLP and 9 Iona College speech language pathology and audiology students presented their research entitled, "Exploring the Mean Length of Utterance Measurement as Part of Language Sample Analysis," at this year's New York State Speech Language Hearing Association's annual conference.
