Today I provided a 2-hour lecture to the CSU dentistry students. I discussed the role of a speech pathologist, guidelines for typical speech and language development in children as well as reasons for referral, and showed them some electropalatography and ultrasound images of tongue/palate contact. The students attended the lecture via videoconference in locations across the state: Bathurst, Orange, Albury, Port Macquarie, Wagga, Dubbo, Sydney, and 13 were on the phone in these and other locations. I enjoy talking with dentistry students, since there are many synergies with our work as speech pathologists.
