    Testimonials

    My experience in the CDA program was nothing short of amazing.  From day one, I knew that the professors were there for us.  They checked in constantly with us to make sure our work load was manageable and if there was any way that they could accommodate our individual learning preferences.  Also, they are all veterans and experts in their respective fields. Most of our professors continued to work their full time SLP or Audiology jobs, meaning they are bringing up-to-date knowledge right into the classroom.  The placements were, in my opinion, the most valuable experience of my year in the CDA program.  You immediately get to apply the base of knowledge you learn in first semester and then gain experience in therapy sessions and step out of your comfort zone to learn something new.  Plus, they are 100% flexible about where you want to go and what population you are interested in working with.  Now that I have finished the program, I can confidently say that the professors of the CDA program have given me not just a career, but a passion.
