For 10 years running, Durham College’s communicative disorders assistant program has received donations thanks to the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Harmonize for Speech fund.
The program, taught out of the school’s Oshawa campus, has used the donations to purchase equipment such as books, communication devices and more.
“This donation has and continues to help in providing our students with additional learning opportunities and materials while in the program,” states Sherry Hinman, professor and interim program coordinator of the program, in a news release. “The items we are able to purchase using the donation allow current, as well as future students the opportunity to excel during their time at the college and succeed in the field following their graduation.”
The one-year program prepares students to work with qualified speech-language pathologists and/or audiologists, helping provide speech and language therapy to people of all ages.
