Speech Pathology Week 2017

This is the Speech Pathology Week 2017 logo. It contains the words 'Communication Access: Everyone gets the message' in white reversed out of dark blue. There is a byline that reads 'Speech Pathology Week 2017'In 2017, Speech Pathology Week is 20-26 August.

Speech Pathology Week seeks to promote the speech pathology profession and the work done by speech pathologist with the more than 1.1 million Australians who have a communication or swallowing disorder that impacts on their daily life.

Communication is a basic human right and Speech Pathology Week seeks to promote this fact.


The theme for Speech Pathology Week in 2017 is: Communication access: Everyone gets the message!

This theme draws on one of the eight key aspirations from the Speech Pathology 2030 project, while reinforcing the important role that speech pathologists play in the lives of Australians with speech and swallowing difficulties.
