Speech-Language Pathology and Psychology Interprofessional Seminar

The Loyola Clinical Centers, in partnership with Loyola University Maryland's graduate Speech-Language Pathology and Psychology programs, will host an interprofessional seminar on Friday, February 22, 2019 at the Loyola University Maryland Graduate Center - Timonium Campus. Beginning at 8:00 a.m. and running to 11:30 a.m., this unique opportunity brings together graduate students from two distinct disciplines, exposing them to real-life journeys from the perspective of the parent of a child with a disability as they attempt to navigate today's educational system. 

The seminar's focus is ‘The School-Aged Child’ and features a parent panel and break-out sessions related to a case study facilitated by a panel of professionals including public, nonpublic, and private school faculty; administrators; and related services providers. Graduate students will be educated in Speech-Language Pathology and Psychology on the roles and responsibilities, ethics, and professional communication related to school-based services, which are three of the IPEC Core Competencies

Interprofessional Education (IPE) is a key component of Loyola's graduate training programs. Graduate students learn with, from, and about other professions, while also learning the competencies needed to successfully participate in interprofessional collaboration.  As future speech-language pathologists and licensed clinical practitioners, Loyola's graduate students must learn to work with others in varied and diverse settings, including schools and healthcare environments.
