Making the Mentoring Connection

Soliant invites you to watch our latest webinar, “Making the Mentoring Connection” presented by Dr. Taína Jiménez López. All speech and language pathologists have been mentored throughout their careers, whether it was during our graduate practicums, our clinical fellowships, or as professionals. At some point, most of us are asked to reciprocate and provide guidance to an early career professional or to seasoned professionals in our work settings. Mentoring can occur in any setting and should have a purpose that guides the relationship between mentor and mentee. The transition from practitioner to mentor should be intentional to make a rewarding connection for both parties. Participants in this seminar will understand their role in this process, review ethical and legal considerations, and acquire strategies for a successful mentoring relationship.

Webinar Objectives:
1. Describe the role of mentor and supervisor in the mentorship relationship.
2. Summarize ethical and legal considerations when establishing a mentorship connection. 
3. Identify strategies for a successful supervision relationship.

Safe Listening Practices for Teaching and Learning in the Virtual Environment

Soliant and our authorized teletherapy partner, VocoVision, invite you to join our latest webinar, “Safe Listening Practices for Teaching and Learning in the Virtual Environment.”

Prior to 2020, headphones were typically used for recreational activities such as listening to music or watching a video. The time spent using headphones was limited to personal usage. Today, virtual learning and remote work have become part of a school’s daily routine.

Telepractitioners, school staff and students are spending 8 hours or more using headphones for work and school-related activities. With the increase in headphone usage, the rate of noise-induced hearing loss has the potential to drastically increase.

In honor of World Hearing Day on March 3rd, join this free seminar to learn how to protect your hearing while conducting work and learning activities in the virtual setting.

Webinar Objectives:

1. Understand how hearing can be damaged by noise in remote learning/teaching environments.
2. Describe how noise-induced hearing loss presents in virtual teaching and learning environments and its impact on students and professionals.
3. Identify proper ear protection and headphone options for daily use.
4. Complete safe listening checks for adults and school-age students.
