2018 Poster Session Results
The CDF celebrated a banner turn-out for the 2018 SHAV student poster session. Our highest number of posters to date had been 15; this year’s 23 proposals (with one no-show because of illness) were well represented by 43 students from all six Virginia universities. The presenters offered an impressive showing of their research insights. Their sense of ownership in answering difficult questions made a scoring difference for many, including these three winners:
Results of Voice Disorder Prevention Training for Physical Education Majors: Jalyn Taylor, Seraphina Chabinec, Peter Seremetis, Leah Horton, Longwood University
Augmented Reality for At-Home Speech Intervention: Emily Vayo and Carrie Doyle, James Madison University
Say WHAT?! Self-Regulated Strategy Development, Writing, and Language Impairment: Karen Barako and Maggie Frye, Radford University
