Reem Khamis-DakwarGreetings, students, alumni and friends of the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education,
This is the third in a series of electronic newsletters for 2018, each dedicated to highlighting the successes of one of the three departments that comprise the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education. This edition focuses on the achievements of the faculty, students and staff of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). 
This newsletter offers you a glimpse of the thoughtful, innovative, socially relevant curriculum we offer our students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. We are also happy to ensure that you have all the administrative support you need for effective, individualized curricular planning so you can achieve the highest and most meaningful levels of professional development. We want to support you in reaching your personal dreams as well as in advancing our profession and contributing to the academic, clinical and research communities. You will find amazing opportunities here with our world-class faculty: clinical-academic integration in the voice change groups; feeding groups; swallowing-screening protocols implemented in the clinic; group therapy for children with language delay and those with autism spectrum disorder; audiology services across the life span; elective course offerings focusing on telepractice, EEG in CSD, language development and poverty, and advanced dysphasia, all offered within our flat-rate program; research engagement opportunities at different levels in a variety of specializations; and administrative support for lab work and for your externships. All of these learning opportunities are designed to help you develop your knowledge and skills and to attain the stepping-stones on your individualized pathway of career preparation and success. 
We in CSD at Adelphi consider it a gift and a privilege to be able to train you to become speech-language pathologists, audiologists and citizens of the world who will advance our scientific knowledge, professional services and community development. This newsletter outlines only some of the continuing work we do with our students to bring added value to your academic training. Beyond the wish to help others, we work to see you moving along your personal professional-development pathway and achieving your dreams!
This is my final year serving as chair of the CSD department, and I am immensely thankful for the opportunity I was given to serve such an amazing community of learners, with such strong instincts to help and to become citizens of the world. I wish you all the very best as you undertake your learning journeys, and I—alongside the rest of the CSD faculty—look forward to continuing to support your personal and professional growth. 
We hope you enjoyed reading about our School this year. Please let us know. Visit us on Facebook and look for the first edition of the 2018–2019 Ammon School of Education e-news in the fall!
With best wishes,
Reem Khamis-Dakwar, Ph.D.
Chair, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders
