Today we are highlighting NSSLHA at Missouri State University!

“This year we started a tutoring service for students in NSSLHA! Students who wanted some extra help in a specific class reach out to NSSLHA and they are given a tutor’s phone number. We are having great success and students are enjoying it. A few weeks ago, we had our annual CSD Fall picnic. Undergraduate, graduate students and all the wonderful faculty and staff that are in the CSD department got together at a local park. We had a huge turn-out and everyone had a great time! Recently, NSSLHA came together and had a bake sale. As a chapter, we raised $320.00. We are planning on donating the profits to the Missouri State Speech and Hearing Clinic. We have had a very successful semester so far and are very excited for what is to come the rest of the year!”

“Truman State University CoDa has been busy this semester. We have several speakers presenting to us at our meetings this semester such as an SLP from Truman State’s Speech and Hearing Clinic. We will also be hearing from a representative from Washington University who will be speaking about their Deaf education graduate program. As for service, we’ve had several members join the community in The Walk to End Alzheimer’s a few weeks ago. We are so excited for our service project next semester which will be raising money for the Greenwood School Autism Clinic! Truman State University CoDa is having a great year and looking forward to the rest of it!”
