The Route 66 Conference on Communication Disorders is an annual continuing education conference organized and hosted by undergraduate speech-language pathology students at The University of Tulsa. Since 1995, this gathering has provided an opportunity for professionals and students to learn from renowned speakers who specialize in one of the nine main areas of speech-language pathology, including receptive and expressive language delay, speech sound disorders, fluency and feeding and swallowing. We’re thrilled to announce that the 2024 Route 66 Conference on Communication Disorders will take place in person at The University of Tulsa’s Student Union on Friday, February 23.
