"I'm not sure how I would feel good about myself as a speech-language pathologist if I had not been a VT-ILEHP trainee. Every day I work, there are instances in which my handling of a situation with teachers, students, and families is directly influenced by my VT-ILEHP training. After working in my field for eight years, I frequently find myself wishing that everyone working with kids with disabilities were able to receive the level of training in supporting children, their teachers, and their families that VT-ILEHP provides."
