Speech Pathology Week seeks to promote the speech pathology profession and the work done by speech pathologists with the 1.2 million Australians who have a communication disability.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has highlighted the challenges faced by Australians with communication disability. Communication is a basic human right and Speech Pathology Week seeks to make Australians aware of this.
Speech pathologists work to ensure everyone can communicate with confidence.
It is important that the broader community understands that:
- 1.2 million Australians live with communication disability;
- Communication disability is largely invisible. Unseen and out-of-sight;
- More confident communication helps maximise educational, health and social outcomes; and
- Communication is more than just speech.
