Speech Pathology Week 2016
In 2016, Speech Pathology Week is 7-13 August.
Speech Pathology Week seeks to promote the speech pathology profession and the work done by speech pathologist with the more than 1.1 million Australians who have a communication or swallowing disorder that impacts on their daily life.
Communication is a basic human right and Speech Pathology Week seeks to promote this fact.
The theme for Speech Pathology Week in 2016 is: Speech Pathology – Creating Futures!
This theme highlights the Speech Pathology 2030 project, while reinforcing the important role that speech pathologists play in the lives of Australians with speech and swallowing difficulties.
Speech Pathology Week Mini-mags
As part of Speech Pathology Week 70,000 mini-mags have been produced and distributed throughout cafes, galleries, museums, theatres, universities, etc.. A mini-mag is a postcard-sized 12-page booklet or mini-magazine. The small booklet promotes Speech Pathology Week, the speech pathology profession, and Speech Pathology Australia. It also explains what a speech pathologist is, how to find one, and how to become one. Looking to find a Mini-mag?
