I had so much fun attending the Texas Speech and Hearing Association Convention last week, I just have to share it with you. I got professional development, was able to network a bit, and had a blast exhibiting with some of my favorite Texas SLPs on Teachers Pay Teachers. I have also been collecting some goodies for a HUGE giveaway. Read on to find out more...
I absolutely LOVE attending conventions. I was blessed to be able to attend ASHA in November, and last week I made it to TSHA, the TX state convention. TSHA is a pretty large event, with over 4500 attendees. We took over the Ft. Worth Convention Center, as well as part of the Omni Hotel across the street. There were hundreds of sessions to select from, and a rockin' exhibit hall.
I joined up with some of my fellow Texas SLPs on TPT and we hosted a booth in the exhibit hall. The group included Panda Speech, Ms. Gardenia's Speech Room, All Y'All Need, Speech Sprouts, A Perfect Blend, Sweet Southern Speech, and myself. We had so much fun sharing our products with visitors, meeting other SLPs, and passing out freebies. Our booth was a major success (we had a long line the entire first day)! It was great fun and we are planning to participate again next year.
I was also able to attend sessions and earn some CE hours. Some of the sessions I attended were on apraxia, service delivery time, literacy development, and AAC, among others. One of the best things about attending your state convention is being able to get your CEUs for the year taken care of in one weekend! There are always so many great presenters and many different options.
I decided to continue the fun of the convention by hosting a HUGE giveaway! While I was at TSHA, I stopped by The Peachie Speechie's booth and bought one of their gorgeous SLP necklaces. I've also been collecting some other goodies.
