I’m thrilled to share the news that our Erin Singleton, our speech-language pathologist in the neuroscience outpatient rehab clinic on the Community Regional campus, was honored with a Outstanding Achievement Award at the California Speech-Language and Hearing Association Convention in Long Beach last month.
The award is for her amazing work with Augmentative and Alternative Communication devices to help many different people to communicate, who would otherwise have no means to do so! For example, some people who have had severe injuries or strokes, may be paralyzed except for movement of a single toe or their tongue, and Erin finds a device with a switch that allows them to speak just by moving their tongue or toe! She’s brought such relief and joy to patients and their families by helping restore a way for them to communicate.
Please join me in congratulating her!
