Alumni Accomplishments...


Michele Zucker Saunders '01, a graduate of our very first class, recently published a set of communication activity books designed for speech-language pathologists and special educators who work with children on the autism spectrum. The 6-volume series, titled Autism and PDD: Things I Can Say and Do, was published by LinquiSystems in August 2006. Michele is a speech-language pathologist in the Haverstraw-Stony Point school district in Rockland County, New York. Congratulations, Michele!

Allyson Castellano '06 and Jennifer Pabon '06 delivered a presentation at the 46th annual NYSSLHA Convention in Saratoga, NY, in April 2006. Their talk, A metabolic imbalance: Implications for oral facial clefting and cognitive changes in the elderly, grew out of their clinical experiences with neonatal and geriatric populations at Westchester Medical Center.

SLP Boating



Traditional Sunset Kayak Cruise (not for credit)

Since the inception of the program, we have celebrated our two years together, and our amazing accomplishments, with a peaceful and beautiful foray onto the Hudson River. The experience must have been very powerful for some -- a few years ago one of our graduates introduced Dr. Volin to her parents as her "kayak instructor." So far as we know, she never mentioned the six classes she took with him!
