Professor, Student & Grads Make Their Voices Heard

The latest issue of Volta Voices, the magazine for the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, contains the thoughts of no less than four Fontbonne University community members. The magazine’s November/December issue focuses on professional preparation and development in the field of facilitating listening and spoken language for individuals with hearing loss.

Dr. Susan Lenihan, professor and director of deaf education, wrote an article titled “From A to Z: Getting Started in Listening and Spoken Language,” offering suggestions and advice to those considering a career in the industry. Her article also contains two personal profiles, both written by Fontbonne graduates. Jenny Regnery Reeder and Amanda Tocko chose Fontbonne University for its graduate programs in speech-language pathology and deaf education and have continued on to become certified LSLS (listening and spoken language specialists) with successful careers.

Elizabeth Boschini, currently a graduate student in Fontbonne’s speech-language pathology program, covered a recent industry conference in her article titled “AG Bell 2009 Listening & Spoken Language Symposium Wrap-Up.”

Fontbonne commends these four individuals for their dedication to their professions and the people they serve.
