Description

Pathways to Becoming a Speech Pathology Assistant: This Evening Workshop is held over two consecutive Wednesday nights. The cost is for 3 hours of training (1.5 hours x 2).

A Speech Pathology Assistant can be referred to as a SPA. SPAs play an important role to support clients and their families with communication skills by working under the direct and indirect supervision of the speech pathologist. SPAs work in the speech pathology clinic, preschool, school or client home to implement speech and language programs.

This 3 hour workshop (presented as 2 x 1.5 hour sessions) is a follow on from the Free Information Session: Working as a Speech Pathology Assistant.

The following topics are covered at the half day workshop:

PART ONE - FIRST EVENING SESSION
