Grant provides children’s books for clients at WSU Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic

The Evelyn Hendren Cassat Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is now bursting with new books. The books were purchased with a Walmart Community Grant that was awarded to Melissa Vagts — master’s in speech-pathology, Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology, associate clinical professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The children’s books will be given to pediatric clients at the end of each semester to promote literacy, language development and foster child-caregiver bonding.
