Speech Pathology Australia national webinar

Today Sarah Verdon and I presented a 90 minute webinar for Speech Pathology Australia titled: Enhancing practice with children and families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
Details of the webinar are here
Here is the abstract:
This event explores the growing cultural and linguistic diversity of Australian families and what it means for speech pathologists wishing to engage in culturally appropriate practice. The event is designed to support speech pathologists to work with multilingual children. The aim of the event is to promote a holistic and collaborative approach to engaging in effective practice with children and families from diverse backgrounds. General principles and resources for assessment and intervention will be supplemented with specific examples from different languages and contexts.
Here is some feedback we received after the presentation:

“I wanted to pass on my thanks for your accomplished, informative, relevant and seamless presentation. I learned so much. I loved your natural, engaging style, and sharing your experiences in addition to your research and extensive resources.”
