The fall semester is wrapping up, and there is lots to share with you about the UWSP NSSLHA chapter! Since we last talked we have had quite a lot happen.

 

Within our monthly meetings we have had two speakers. Our first speaker was an SLP from the Stevens Point school district. She briefly shared her educational and early career history, as well as what a typical day as a school SLP involves. The other speaker was a music therapist. She works with the VA to help veterans through PTSD trauma as well as get non-verbal clients to communicate in other forms than speech, such as singing.

 

Additionally, we have had three socials. In October, members got together to paint pumpkins in light of Halloween. For the November Social our chapter's officers hosted a CSD social night. The purpose of this event was to present the opportunity to members to meet and talk with professors as well as SLP and AuD professionals from the community. Through this event members were enlightened on various areas within these professions, and professors got to know our members better. Our last social was combined with our end of semester meeting. In addition to going over some end of semester updates, we had an ugly sweater and cupcake decorating contests! Our members were very creative in decorating their cupcakes to say the least! We also incorporated a Kahoot game with common Q&As about the WSHA conference. As of right now we have about 36 members signed up to attend the conference!

 

 

Lastly, we maintained our strong presence in the Stevens Point community through volunteer events. These events included healthy family night at the Portage county Children's Museum, make a difference day (community rake-a-thon), reading at the childcare center on campus, Whispering pines  assisted living facility game night, adopt a family for Christmas, and more!
