About the Praxis Review

The National Black Association for Speech-Language and Hearing (NBASLH) is sponsoring its Annual Review Course in preparation for the Praxis II Examination in Speech-Language Pathology. The course has been sponsored since 1988 and is taught by an outstanding faculty of scholars who are experts and/or certified speech-language pathologists and audiologists.

The Intensive Review for the Praxis Examination was designed to target the topic areas identified by the Educational Testing Service Praxis Series as being the content included on the examination. In addition, there will be a special session on strategic test taking and craniofacial anomalies!
