Event description
The Disability and Inclusion team at Deakin University warmly invites you to a symposium celebrating the career of Professor Sue Balandin.

About this Event

Professor Balandin’s work has profoundly shaped practice in the fields of communication, social inclusion and mealtime management, and has sparked creative connections across a range of diverse disciplines including speech pathology, education, engineering, virtual reality, and social media.

She has been a much-loved academic staff member of Deakin University (Victoria, Australia), Høgskolen i Molde (Molde, Norway), Victoria University (Wellington, NZ), and the University of Sydney (NSW, Australia), and has been recognised as a fellow of Speech Pathology Australia and the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication for her immense contributions to the discipline of speech pathology, and specifically augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

We invite you to join us in celebrating Sue’s many successes and reflecting on our connected body of work in communication and inclusion. In addition to a keynote presentation by Professor Balandin, the symposium will include presentations from leaders in Australian disability and communication research, on topics such as:

  • Communication access
  • Transition to Retirement for people with a disability
  • Rehabilitation support for Aboriginal Australians after brain injury
  • Deaf mental health
  • Inclusion of students with autism in regular education
  • …And many more

Anyone with an interest in disability, communication or inclusion research - including students, practitioners, and people with disability and those who support them - are all welcome to attend.

Please note that this event will be interpreted into Auslan. The event space is fully accessible and we have a fully equipped Changing Places facility on campus. Please contact Dr Kate Anderson on +61 3 9251 7850 or via email at Kate.anderson2@deakin.edu.au with any inquiries, including any additional accessibility requirements.
