In April 2021, I completed a post-professional, clinical doctorate at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. I'm excited and proud to present my research, The Effects of AAC-Aided Recasts via Telepractice on the Grammar of Children with Severe Language Disorders at ASHA's National Convention this November. This will be my 13th year at South Hanover.
