Courtney Huellen Future LSL Therapist - Recognized By ISU

Congratulations Courtney Huellen on her recognition by the  Illinois State University CSD Department · January 28

Courtney "would like to earn the Listening and Spoken Language certification from AG Bell after she graduates with her master's degree because working with people who have hearing loss is something she is passionate about. Courtney’s dream job would be to serve on a pediatric cochlear implant team as the SLP and help children reach their Spoken language goals!...

At ISU she has served as both the secretary and Vice President for NSSLHA. She has also volunteered with Alpha Phi Omega and Choose to Shine. During spring break 2017, Courtney had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Spain!"

Courtney is the oldest of four children.  Two of her siblings have Usher's Syndrome, are Listening and Spoken Language SUPERSTARS and hear with cochlear implants.Courtney's sister Brittany is one of my AVT graduates now a freshman in college pursuing special education as a teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing.

I am proud of these sisters and their desire to give back making it possible so other children who are deaf or hard of hearing learn to listen and talk, which powers language, literacy, and lifetime success.
