SLP Graduate Program Participates in Abilene Buddy Walk
On September 17, the students of the Hardin-Simmons University Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) program participated in the 10th Annual Buddy Walk. Hosted by the Upside Down Club of Abilene, the Buddy Walk exists to promote inclusion and awareness of individuals with Down syndrome.
For the first time, members of the SLP graduate program set up a table at the event as an opportunity to show support on behalf of HSU. Additionally, their table provided information to attendees about the Houston-Lantrip Center, which offers behavioral and speech therapy to students of all ages.
“The goal of our SLP program is to show students we will have the opportunity to work with those who may have disabilities,” shared SLP graduate student Hanna Reese. “We get to love and support them through therapy to help them find their voice and live their lives to the fullest!”
