The Language and Communication Conference invites Speech Pathologists to learn about the latest evidence-based research and clinical assessments that improve language learning outcomes for children and students with language or communication disorders.
Peer reviewed clinical research tells us that:
- Language disorders don’t disappear when a child goes to school
- Language disorders affect social participation
- Language disorders are associated with heightened risks of social anxiety
- Language disorders affect academic and work outcomes

The ongoing support and professional learning is paramount to helping these children reach their potential.
The topics covered will explore research insights and will discuss pathways to improving language learning outcomes, ultimately enabling children and students to become well-adjusted and healthy community members.
