As a student I had the opportunity to work with adults with intellectual disabilities. In that time, I saw frustration when communication breakdowns occurred. I became eager to learn more about the communication sciences and disorders. The more I learned, the more passionate I became. I have had the opportunity to share that passion with students and new graduates along the way.
