Looking to learn more about communicative sciences and disorders directly from a speech-language pathologist (SLP) in the field?
Join current PhD Sandy Abu El Adas for a discussion entitled "Working as an SLP outside the US and how to get involved in research" hosted in collaboration with the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders undergraduate program.
Meet Sandy Abu El Adas
My name is Sandy and I'm a 5th year PhD student in the Communicative Sciences and Disorders Department at NYU. I'm also a licensed SLP in Israel and have worked in various preschools and developmental centers in Jaffa, my hometown, for two years before arriving in the US. As a Palestinian and bilingual SLP, I enjoyed working with different populations speaking different languages (Arabic and Hebrew) and contributing to my society that already has a huge shortage in Arabic speaking SLPs, but I always felt like I was lacking a lot of knowledge when it came to providing intervention in my native language, Palestinian-Arabic. For this reason, I decided to pursue a more research-oriented career path, which is why I'm here at NYU! In my talk, I'll share some of the differences in our field in the US and Israel/Palestine, my work as a bilingual SLP, and how much I love research.
