Successful Seminar and Exhibition about Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions at #ASHA19, ASHA’s Annual Conference in Orlando
Herb, Joanne and Janis, the G.R.E.E.N. Team of Hein SLP Inc., all took the opportunity to introduce the Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions Social Literacy Program to speech-language pathologists (SLPs) from all over the country who visited our booth at the Annual Convention in Orlando for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. We showed examples of the lessons in the InterActive Lesson Book, the numerous visual strategies (Wise Action Tools), the hands-on items from the InterActive Toolbox, and graphs and evaluation charts showing social behavior progress resulting from the program’s use in treatment. Visitors to our booth were able to hear Herb’s Songs for Guiding G.R.E.E.N. Thoughts, the companion album for the program. We met many SLPs who were very interested in what they saw and eager to integrate the program in their own schools and clinics.
Thanks to Justin Goldstein, ASHA’s Associate Director for Corporate Partnerships, Hein SLP Inc. was able to be a sponsor for the convention. As a result, Herb had the opportunity to present about the Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions Program and sponsor a lunch for the Special Interest Group #1 Language Learning and Education. We also had giant digital billboard displays of our 10 second videos that Adam Hein of Heinsight Inc created for us.
Herb also presented a well-attended seminar called Imagine Making the Best Behavior Choices: Teaching Language, Analysis, and Self-Monitoring Skills for Thoughtful Interactions (#1887). He presented the evidence for the different approaches that are integral to the Growing G.R.E.E.N InterActions Program and then explained these approaches for guiding individuals to be more thoughtful in their interactions.
The G.R.E.E.N. Team Trio enjoyed joining the rest of the convention attendees for the Closing Party at a section of Universal Studios that was open on Saturday night just for us. E.T., Harry Potter and Homer Simpson helped us enjoy the end of our successful experience in Orlando.
