The 2018 Annual Conference on October 4th and 5th is now less than three months away, and we are so excited that the conference will be held this year in Raleigh at the beautiful Raleigh Convention Center! A full line-up of speakers has been confirmed for both days, including a second day with an option of two tracks for attendees to choose between.
As one of our featured speakers for the pediatric track on the second day, Dr. Cheryl DeConde Johnson will join us to speak on Hot Topics in Educational Audiology. Dr. Johnson has a background as an educational audiologist and program coordinator for a public school deaf and hard of hearing program and as a former consultant with the Colorado Department of Education. She is active as a consultant, program evaluator, writer, and adjunct faculty member or lecturer in several AuD or deaf education programs. She is a trainer for the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE). Dr. Johnson is also a co-founder and President of the Board of Directors for Hands & Voices, a non-profit, parent-driven organization supporting families of children with hearing loss. We are excited to have her highlight important current issues in educational audiology, and hope you will join us to hear her presentation!
