Why should you attend?

This one day course will present both an overview and recent discoveries in the field of childhood speech disorders.

The overall aim is to improve clinical knowledge and management of children with speech sound disorders. We also tackle the latest neuroscientific evidence and translate findings for a clinical audience.

Specifically, the course will address:

  • assessment and diagnosis of child speech disorders across articulation, phonology, dysarthria and childhood apraxia of speech.
  • findings on the neural and genetic bases of these conditions

There will be a practical session and discussion around clinical case presentations.

Who should attend:

  • Speech therapy students/graduates
  • Speech and language therapists interested in a refresher on the latest research evidence

Level: Beginner to intermediate, but specialists welcome.

 

Topics:

  • Differential diagnosis of child speech disorders
  • Brain and genetic bases of child speech disorders
  • Treatments of child speech disorders

What you will learn by the end of the course:

  • you will have a sound protocol to support your assessment and differential diagnosis of child speech disorder sub-types.
  • You will have learned the latest evidence on how these disorders occur
  • You will have learned the best treatment approaches for managing each of the speech disorder subtypes
