SXU Hosts Annual CSD Professional Development Workshop


Saint Xavier University's (SXU) Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program will host its annual professional development workshop for speech language pathologists (SLP) entitled: The Role of the SLP in Evaluation, Care and Treatment of Vocal Athletes. The course will be presented by Wendy LeBorgne, Ph.D., CCC-SLP.

LeBorgne is a highly sought-after voice pathologist, international speaker, author and master-class clinician regarding the fields of vocal wellness and vocal athletes. Her recent TED Talk on Voice Branding™ enlightened audiences on the elements of authentic, engaged communication. Her 22-year career as a voice pathologist and singing voice specialist includes serving as the clinical director of two successful private practice voice centers -- ProVoice Center in Cincinnati, OH and BBIVAR in Bayton, OH -- both evaluating and treating patients with vocal injury. LeBorgne also holds an adjunct professor position at Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) as a voice consultant, caring for the voices of the actors and singers at CCM. She also teaches undergraduate vocal pedagogy, a new doctoral level commercial music pedagogy course and a new course on the vocal wellness of vocal athletes.

The workshop will be held in McGuire Hall on Friday, January 4, and Saturday, January 5, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost of attending will be $200 per individual and $100 for SXU alumni.
