Longwood University’s speech-language pathology program and the Lions Club caught wind of fourth-graders in need of a hearing conservation education. They knew they had to act fast, so they signaled for help from the only people equipped for the job!  Local superhero DeciBoy (graduate student Michael Mahoney) and his hearing specialist sidekicks (graduate students Carli Rogers and Suzanne Johnson) quickly assembled, under the direction of Dr. Lissa Power-deFur, Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and headed to Prince Edward Elementary earlier this month.  Click here for the rest of the story.



Longwood University's Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSDS) Advisory Committee recently recognized Dr. Tommie Robinson, director of the Scottish Rite Center for Childhood Language Disorders in the Department of Hearing and Speech at Children's National Medical Center, for his ongoing support of Longwood's CSDS program.
