There are 1.2 million Australians with communication disability. Speech pathologists support these Australians to go about each day communicating with confidence.
In Australia, communication disability is largely invisible. Unseen and out-of-sight.
Australians with communication disability cannot maximise future educational, health and social outcomes, without the intervention of a speech pathologist. Communicating with confidence is vital to enable everyone to participate fully in the social, educational, economic and sporting aspects of any community, including the Illawarra community.
That’s why during Speech Pathology Week, from 23-29 August 2020, speech pathologists around Australia are highlighting the week’s theme: Communicating with Confidence.
