Speech Pathology Week and the SPA 'Book of the Year' awards

In a nice co-incidence, this week is not only Book Week ...
Each year Speech Pathology Australia hosts Speech Pathology Week to make Australians more aware of those in our community who have a speech or swallowing difficulty.

In 2015, Speech Pathology Week is from 23-29 August. In 2015, the theme for Speech Pathology Week is Talk with me.


Visit the Speech Pathology Australia website here, to learn more about how you can participate and benefit from the Talk with me campaign.

The Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Awards 
... 'aim to promote children’s books as literacy tools, as well as raising awareness of the role of speech pathologists play in helping children develop language and literacy skills. The awards:
  • promote quality Australian children’s literature;
  • enhance awareness of the role speech pathologists play in language and literacy development; and
  • encourage a love of reading.
... The books nominated all five children’s categories have now been shortlisted ... and winners will be announced on Thursday 15 October at the Book of the Year Awards’ Ceremony at the State Library of Queensland.' ... Speech Pathology Australia
