Public Awareness

Our Week of Connection is, at its heart, an Awareness Week. We want more people to know what a speech-language therapist does and where we work. 

It’s critical that the people who need specialist input for their communication and swallowing get that help, at the right time. This will happen when public and professionals alike know who we are and what we can help with. We also need a diverse range of people training to become speech language therapists, so we can work effectively with our population.

Coming soon: Resources you can use to raise awareness of our profession and the work we do, during the Week of Connection. 

Upcoming Actions (Coming on September 7th) : Change your facebook page background for the week – come back here to download resources closer to the day!
