Here is what the student clinicians say:

Jillian“This group has allowed me to grow as a clinician and become more familiar with language impairments. I am acquiring the skills to better promote communication among those who experience difficulty communicating.”

Paula“This is an amazing opportunity for a clinician to broaden their clinical skills by working side by side with others. These are skills that can be carried over to many other areas in the profession.”

    - Paula


“The group has taught me to think outside the box when working with people with communication difficulties."

– Kristen


“This group has improved my clinical skills by enabling me to learn and refine the skills needed to facilitate communication in a group therapy setting with adults who have varying communication impairments and severity levels.”

– Jess

Varshni“As a student clinician, I felt initially that organizing a communication group therapy program for heterogeneous group of individuals (a range of severity levels and communication impairments) would be difficult. But now, working with this diverse group, it has enhanced my scope of practical skills to apply theoretical understanding to appropriate situations”.
