Oklahoma State University will host a conference on implementing social thinking concepts and vocabulary to address communications disorders on Friday, April 7, at the Wes Watkins Center.
The Cimarron Conference on Communications Disorders will feature an expert in social learning, Renee Attaway, a certified speech-learning pathologist, as the keynote speaker for the meeting.
Attaway is the founder and director of a program called Social Thinking at Parish, which has been offered for more than five years at the Parish School in Houston, a private, non-profit institution, which specializes in educating children (ages 2 – 12) challenged by communication delays and learning disorders.
Attaway is an OSU alumna (B.S. Communication Sciences and Disorders ’98 ) with a master’s degree from Baylor. She is a member of the Social Thinking Training and Speakers’ Collaborative, and has been providing workshops for organizations in the U.S. and Canada since 2012.
The conference is coordinated by the OSU Department of Communications Sciences and Disorders, and the OSU College of Arts and Sciences Outreach. The conference program is offered for 0.6 continuing education credits for intermediate level professionals with full attendance required.
