Providing funding for speech/language pathologists

The Palmer Center Foundation awards grants that allow practitioners in the field of special education to attend national conferences in order to enhance their professional skills. Last year, The Palmer Center Foundation provided funding for several speech/language pathologists from local school systems to attend the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s schools convention in Kansas City, Missouri. The mission of ASHA is “making effective communication a human right, accessible and achievable for all.” Techniques and best practices acquired by our local educators are already in practice, benefiting students in the Tri-City area.
