Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
PediaStaff recruiters are ready to meet with thousands of clinicians at the 57th Annual Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA) Convention and Exhibition to be held February 27 – March 1 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
With more than 4,500 speech-language pathologists, audiologists, consumers, and speakers from Texas and surrounding areas attending, the convention will serve as an exchange of ideas, information, and technology. Attendees can register on TSHA’s website. Register by February 12 to receive a discounted registration fee.
“This is always a great convention for us to connect with therapists and potential clients,” the firm’s President Keith Adams said. “The enthusiasm this group has for their work is contagious and very exciting to be a part of.”
PediaStaff expects to discuss career opportunities with at least 1,000 Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs). In addition to the Toobaloos PediaStaff normally gives away at events, they will also be handing out the new Toobaloo Headsets. Toobaloos are phone-like therapy tools that can be used to provide auditory feedback.
“Kids love the headsets,” Adams said. “They allow them to use the Toobaloos hands-free while writing, plus they look high-tech, so the kids feel cool and grown up.”
