The Department is currently supported by three federal personnel preparation grants that provide CD&S students with small group specialized instruction and clinical experiences, tuition remission, conference travel, and book allowances. One of these grants, Project AACES, focus on training SJSU students to provide services in special populations, persons who use augmentative and alternative communication. A second grant, Project Tapestry, aims to develop SJSU students in culturally competent assessment and intervention activities to meet the needs of multicultural populations. A third federal grant, Project EPICS, is a partnership between SJSU and the University of Guam to train residents of the Pacific Islands in speech-language pathology. For more information on these grants, please visit our grants page.
Students selected to be on Project AACES and Project Tapestry attend workshops that provide additional knowledge and skills in the focus areas of the grants. Below is a list of the workshops for 2017-18. The workshops will be updated as dates are confirmed.
