BUD – Maryland and DC

Builders- Brad Ingrao University of Maryland, Clinical Audiology Instructor and chief builder of Bud. Ingrao was assisted by AuD doctoral students Travis Conrad and Christopher Waldroup.
Bud was built as a collaboration between the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the University of Maryland’s (UMD) Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences. Bud’s birth was induced out of recognition and celebration of Better Hearing and Speech Month. In observance, the D.C. offices of ASHA sponsored the cost for his materials and man-hours spent. Free hearing testing and mp3 decibel readings were given to ASHA staff and neighbors.
Bud’s future looks bright with his schedule filling. He will be making appearances in Las Vegas for ASHA’s schools conference. He will also be attending ASHA’s national conference held annually in Philadelphia, PA.
