Inside the Program

Baby Day provides real-life experience for health professions students

Baby Day, an interprofessional event hosted by the Communication Sciences and Disorders and Physical Therapy departments, is a day many students look forward to.

The event -- held each spring -- provides students, families and professionals an opportunity to gather and learn more about the development of infants and toddlers. CSD students spend the day observing and evaluating babies' reactions and verbal skills. They also learn how motor development and communication go hand in hand.

Baby Day is a positive experience for everyone involved and is a great way to enhance the education of the students.


The 15-credit-hour minor includes three required courses in American Sign Language and two additional electives based on your interests and career goals.


Thanks to WSU's extensive network of employer connections, students in every major have opportunities to gain real-world experience—helping them build a resume, make professional connections and land their dream jobs.
