If three days of nonstop activity and learning just aren’t enough for you, come to Orlando early and take in some pre-convention workshops (and additional CEUs) sponsored by the Florida Association of Speech-Language-Pathologists and Audiologists on Wed., Nov. 19.
Anyone can purchase tickets for one of these three concurrent sessions on the convention registration. If you live in the Orlando area but don’t plan to attend the convention, you can buy tickets to the Wednesday sessions only (without registering for the convention itself).

Panelists will demonstrate the benefits of interprofessional education across disciplines by applying those standards to the situations of a child and a family and will share resources from and next steps for each.
