Communications from Speech Pathology Australia

Speech Pathology Australia communicates regularly with members through a variety of means. The Association will, however, never contact a member through submission of a website contact form.

The Association has become aware that there may have been incidences of this happening. Where a member receives contact of this nature, stating it is from Speech Pathology Australia, they should immediately contact the Association as we are endeavouring to take steps to prevent this from occurring.
