Holiday Spirit

Since 1993, The Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles has sponsored “Holidays from the Heart.” This is a program that provides their “most financially challenged families with basic tools to enjoy a fuller and happier holiday season.” The program consists of purchasing gifts for these families who have children who are chronically ill or injured or those that are financially unable to provide for themselves and their children during the holiday season.

This will be the second year for NSSLHA at CSULA to work with "Holidays from the Heart" and adopt a family to support. Every contribution is greatly appreciated. Please put all your considerable donations in Locker #8. You will really be helping this family with food and clothing to stay warm for the holidays. In addition, there is a box in the clinic prep room where we are gladly accepting any food and canned good donations for the food drive.

NSSHLA greatly appreciates all the donations that have already been made. We thank you and hope to meet our goal of raising $600 for the family. Currently, we have almost $200 in donations.

If you have questions please contact any NSSLHA officer.
Thank you, again, for your generosity and for helping NSSLHA help a family in need!
Have a wonderful holiday

And the Winners are.....

The votes have been counted and the winners of the NSSLHA 2008 Elections are…

Novmeber 2007 Minutes

Thanks to Cheryl and Kristin, our class of 2007 graduates, for their insightful information on becoming a Speech Language Pathologist. These girls graduated in the summer of 2007 and are currently doing their Clinical Fellowship. Kristin is in the hospital setting and Cheryl in the school setting. The girls were very informative and excited to share their experiences with us. Here is what we learned:

Kristin-Kristin works at two hospitals and her hours are from 8am to 7pm. Her setting also requires her to work some weekends and occasionally on holiday. Unfortunately, she has to work on thanksgiving L. Kristin has about 6 to 10 people on her caseload. About 75% of her caseload are swallowing, Dysphagia, patients. She also has patients with Dysarthria, and Cognitive/Language Delays. A typical day for Kristin includes seeing new orders, then treatment. Kristin says it is all about the patient’s, new order, and Medicaid billing.

Cheryl-Cheryl works for LA Country and her hours are from 8:30am to 3:00pm. She has approximately 65 clients on her caseload. (Don’t worry guys- this is not a typical caseload, it is because the school she works at is low on staff). She predominately works with students with language disorders. A typical day for Cheryl includes training, meetings, and IEP’s. Cheryl gets training in ASHA, KASA, PECS, and materials. Her training is paid for. Cheryl says it is all about the students, parents and productivity.

Both of these hard working girls receive benefits and pension plans.

So here is the hard question? How do we decide where to work? What has better benefits? What appeals to each and every one of us as individuals?
Her is a breakdown:

School Benefits:
Work less days
Less hours
Paid Training
Holidays off
Weekends off

Hospital Benefits:
Better pay
New challenges
Variety of Cases
Medical Miracles
Time and ½ for holidays
Less caseload

Follow Guidelines and Be Safe!!! Don’t get MASA (staff infection), don’t get bit, and don’t wait for answers.

You go from the learner to the expertYou make all the decisions.

Support for Children Affected by Hurricane Katrina
By Rachelle DeVore

In June I will be joining the New Orleans chapter of Habitat for Humanity and a partner family in constructing a new home in New Orleans. After visiting New Orleans for the first time this past January, I was astounded by the extent of Katrina’s devastation and the still impoverished living conditions of many of its residents. Each individual I encountered on my visit had a different experience to relate although it was clear that all stories had a similar theme. Help was woefully insufficient and thousands of families, while still waiting for assistance, remain homeless.

In addition to helping in the construction of a home for a family in need, I want to purchase school supplies and other educational materials for local children that are still living in shelters. My goal is to raise a minimum of one-thousand dollars by June 1st to purchase basics such as pens, pencils, paper, books and educational materials and games.

Any amount that you, or someone you know can contribute, will be useful and greatly appreciated. I will be taking lots of pictures and keeping a journal so that I am able to share my experiences with you. Please do whatever you can to help. I know that the families and especially the children will be thankful for your support.

By Rachelle DeVore

In June I will be joining the New Orleans chapter of Habitat for Humanity and a partner family in constructing a new home in New Orleans. After visiting New Orleans for the first time this past January, I was astounded by the extent of Katrina’s devastation and the still impoverished living conditions of many of its residents. Each individual I encountered on my visit had a different experience to relate although it was clear that all stories had a similar theme. Help was woefully insufficient and thousands of families, while still waiting for assistance, remain homeless.

I tutor eight elementary age children in the Los Angeles Unified school district through government sponsored, "No Child Left Behind", program. The reality is that the majority of these children are from low socio-economic communities that struggle to provide the motivation, support and educational materials that these children need in order to do well in school. I couldn't help but wonder what would become of these children if the little they have was taken from them in and instant. I could not imagine my students without a school to attend or a home to go to at the end of the day.

With the children in mind, I set another goal for my trip. In addition to helping in the construction of a home for a family in need, I want to purchase school supplies and other educational materials for local children that are still living in shelters. My hope is to raise enough money to purchase basics such as pens/pencils and paper as well as books and educational materials/games. I know that the scope of this project is limited however if I am able to help even one child in need, it will be worthwhile.

My goal is to raise a minimum of one-thousand dollars by June 1st. Any amount that you, or someone you know can contribute, will be useful and greatly appreciated. I will be taking lots of pictures and keeping a journal so that I am able to share my experiences with you. Please do whatever you can to help. I know that the families and especially the children will be thankful for your support.

Response to question from NSSHLA meeting.

Hello Everyone-

Kelly followed up with a response to the question he was presented with during the meeting. Here is what he had to say:

Thank you again for the opportunity to speak. I wanted to provide an answer for the person who asked about the prevalence number for boys. It is 1 in 94, vs, the 1 in 150 for all children. Keep up the great work and I will be looking for you at the Walk!

3. Repetitive Behavior
=Autism is a spectrum disorder

Rachelle DeVore

Rachelle DeVore is a first year post-bacc student running for NSSHLA Post-Bacc Representative. A native New Yorker, Rachelle relocated from NYC to LA in May of 2005 with the intention of studying at Cal State LA! Prior to her move, Rachelle graduated from NYU where she majored in musical theater and worked as an ABA therapist. Today, Rachelle tutors nine children in English and Language Arts through the "No Child Left Behind" program and will be helping to build homes in the St. Bernard Parish area of New Orleans (one of the communities most devastated by Hurricane Katrina) with "Habit For Humanity", in June, 2007.
Rachelle feels she is the perfect candidate for taking on this new and developing role while learning from and assisting the current board members. If elected, Rachelle will incorporate her diverse interests and experiences into fullfilling the responsibilities of this position. Rachelle offers a unique and creative perspective, a positive attitude, and a dedication to ensuring that her fellow classmates are as enthusiastic about participating and contributing to NSSHLA at Cal State LA as she is.

Carol Nga Ching Wong

I will get the job done! Vote for Carol!! Hi! I am carol. We are probably in the same class together now or have been once before. If you still don't remember me, I'll give you a hint, I am the one who always comes up with weird questions for the professors. Well, I promise that I will continue to ask the questions you don't want to ask once I am elected. I will get my job done! I will represent all post-grad students in the Communication Disorders department to other graduates and professors. I will be the bridge between the department and the whole post-grad student body.

Wednesday, February 14, 2007



Julie is a full-time student studying Speech-Language Pathology; this is her second quarter here at CSULA. Her undergraduate degree was in Visual Arts Media from UCSD, and she claims that was way too long ago to mention the year! She still enjoys the arts but several life-changing experiences have led her to SLP, and she is glad she made the switch. Julie is interested in becoming the post-bacc representative for the CSULA chapter of NSSLHA because she wants to experience all aspects of the field, and not just the academic part. She also knows that she would be able to help spread the word about the meetings and events to her fellow post-bacc students because she shares their class schedule.

First NSSHLA meeting of 2007

Thanks to everyone for attending the first NSSLHA meeting of the year! If you couldn’t make the meeting, or if you loved it so much that you want to re-live the highlights, here is what went on:

President: Toniann Francisco
Vice President: Jacqueline Gudis
Treasurer: Brenda De La Rosa

Thanks so much to the 2006 officers who did such a fantastic job in making NSSLHA the outstanding organization we all know and love. Your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed.
· President: Kimberly Ng
· Vice President: Andrea
· Secretary: Cheryl Liang
· Treasurer: Suzanne Sassoon
· Newspaper Editor: Kristin Reisch

A reminder to everyone to consider joining local NSSLHA (five dollars per quarter, or twenty dollars for the year), as well as National NSSLHA (for more information go to )

We have decided to hold elections for the position of the post bac representative, if you are interested in running, please contact an officer.

To date, we have speakers on deck to present on the following topics: tongue thrust, GLAD (Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness), Autism, and the SLP in the rehabilitation hospital setting. Please share your ideas on what speakers and events you would like to see this year.
