Barb, a visionary, has dedicated her career to creating and promoting many of the local, state and national level professional practices considered gold standard today. Her contributions are numerous and she has inspired leadership throughout her profession. In honor of Barb’s retirement, OSSPEAC has established this grant. The funds provided to grant recipients will help to foster this same level of excellence among our early career SLPs. SLPs entering school-based practice have always been a passion for Barb. She has provided support, materials and leadership to assist these SLPs in their growth in the schools. She has also played an integral part in recruitment of school-based practitioners over the years.
