Students introduced to field of speech, hearing
Three Eastern Indiana high school students are among 16 secondary students who will participate in a three-day speech and hearing institute from July 8 through July 10.
Jo Ann Bushey, Yorktown High School senior; Ruth LeMaster, Portland High School junior, and Becky Flesher, Monroe Central High School sophomore, will represent Eastern Indiana.
The students will observe speech and hearing clinicians working with children and adults and will perform speech therapy. They will also be exposed to various working environments of speech and hearing clinicians and will live with children enrolled in the Residential Clinic program.
The institute is sponsored by the Ball State Speech and Hearing Clinic and Psi Iota Xi Sorority.
