Here is a description and program from today
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 19 of the UDHR supports communication as a human right and states "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
The International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology has joined the world in celebrating this milestone by publishing a special issue titled: "Communication is a human right: Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights", guest edited by Professor Sharynne McLeod.
Professor McLeod will discuss the special issue and the right to communication. Her presentation will be followed by presentations by the authors of two papers published in the upcoming special issue, Dr Jenna Gillett-Swan and Ms Haley Tancredi.
