Education and Standards Committee Report

Education and Standards Committee

The 2015 ANCDS Annual Scientific and Business Meeting, November 11, 2015, the day prior to the ASHA convention, will be split between two topic areas. The morning presentations will focus on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Lenore Hawley and Jody Newman from Craig Hospital, a Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems institution located in Englewood, CO, will share their findings from a multisite treatment study targeting social competence in adults with TBI. In the afternoon, two separate presentations, one by Katerina Hilari from City University London, and the second by Carolyn Baylor of the University of Washington, will center on recent research targeting the nature and assessment of aspects of the quality of life for individuals with neurogenic communication disorders.

Denver Details
Getting to and moving around downtown Denver is easy and doesn’t require a car. The RTD bus (route AF) will take you from the airport to Union Station, which is only a short walk from most of the Convention hotels. The ride takes less than hour and is just $11.

November is a perfect time to visit Denver. In town, temperatures will range from daily highs of 55 to lows in the 30s at night, while the mountains will be in full winter mode; so be sure to pack layers! Within easy walking distance of the Convention Center, you’ll find plenty of outstanding restaurants and pubs.

If you need a break from ANCDS/ASHA events, pick up a bike at one of the 86 B-Cycle stations and take a short ride along the Platte River on Greenway Trail or the Cherry Creek Trail. There’s also going to be a wonderful special exhibit of Andrew Wyeth and son, Jamie, at the Denver Art Museum and the Lion King will be on stage at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, right next door to the Convention Center. For those who might be able to extend their stay, early skiing will be within about a one-hour drive at A-Basin, Loveland, and Copper Mountains.

The Education and Standards Committee is looking forward to seeing you in Denver!
