In my current setting, as a clinical speech-language pathologist, I have access to multiple resources for information, frequent in-services, and opportunities for mentoring from colleagues. The environment is further enhanced because each person chooses to continue his/her education within fields of interest, and that knowledge is then shared within the group. An area of interest to me is pediatric voice. There were limited ways for me to further my knowledge in my daily setting; therefore, I began searching for a course devoted to pediatric voice and trach/vents. Though I was able to find many courses devoted to the adult population, I was unable to locate any with a pediatric focus. That is until I attended the Division 3 Clinical Conference on Voice Problems in School Age Children in Nashville, TN. The information presented was both clinical and theoretical in nature. This is an important criterion for me when selecting a course. Oftentimes, courses are either research-based with limited clinical implication or just the opposite, clinical in nature without theory or efficacy research to base techniques upon. This course was an excellent balance of both and was specific to pediatrics.
