IALP supports the International Communication Project

The board members of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics took time during our 2-day board meeting to discuss our involvement with the International Communication Project. As part of the discussion we each wrote a speech bubble about the importance of communication. They were written in a range of languages including Dutch, Italian, Arabic, Maltese, Chinese, Portuguese, and Swedish.
Some speech bubbles (and translations) read:
  • "Silence is not always golden. Communication is not a luxury"
  • "CommUnication involves You and I"
  • "We come together when we communicate"
  • "Communication is a privilege that everyone should enjoy"
  • "I could not think of a more meaningful job"
  • "I love to help people with communication disorders"
  • "Communication facilitates access to the soul"
  • "Communication is a human right"
