Sandra Levey
Professor Sandra Levey
Lehman's Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences is once again beginning a program of Continuing Education workshops that will address evidence-based approaches to the assessment and treatment of speech and language disorders. Professor Sandra Levey is taking on the role of Continuing Education Administrator for the Department and working in conjunction with Department Chair Deena K. Bernstein to plan the series. To register for the program, download the form here.

The program begins with a presentation on aphasia in Fall 2005, followed by a workshop on vocabulary and spelling in Spring 2006 and a session on bilingualism in Fall 2006. Each of the speakers is an outstanding researcher and author in his or her field.

Professor Levey points out that there are over 6,000 speech-language pathologists residing in the metropolitan New York area. "Given the need for continuing education," she says, "Lehman College will be providing practitioners with a useful and timely program they need to fulfill requirements for professional development."
