“SCSHA, (South Carolina Speech Language Hearing Association), was thrilled to host Treva Graves, MA CCC-SLP  as one of our featured speakers for our 60th Anniversary Convention!  Treva, who perfectly embodies one of our favorite terms “Southern Grace,” spoke to an excited crowd of Speech-Language Pathologists and Assistants on Accent Modification.  For most, treatment of Accent Modification, can be fearful and nerve-wracking, however Treva shared functional strategies that enlightened her colleagues and assuaged those fears.  SCSHA is grateful to have her subject matter expertise this past year and looks forward to future lectures she offers…especially her courses on Image, Communication, and Leadership Coaching!”
