Speech Pathology Week 2020 seeks to promote the speech pathology profession and the work done by speech pathologists with the 1.2 million Australians who have a communication disability.
The theme for Speech Pathology Week in 2020 is: Communicating with confidence!
Dates: 23 - 29 August, 2020
Location: Australia wide.
Delivery mode: virtual event.
Communication is a basic human right and Speech Pathology Week seeks to make Australians aware of this.
Speech pathologists work to ensure everyone can communicate with confidence. It is important that the broader community understands that:
- 1.2 million Australians live with communication disability.
- Communication disability is largely invisible. Unseen and out-of-sight.
- More confident communication helps maximise educational, health and social outcomes.
- Communication is more than just speech.
More information on communication disabilities and Speech Pathology Week is available on Speech Pathology Australia’s website: speechpathologyaustralia.org.au/week.
