Our Regular Workshop Progams

We regularly present workshops to parents, teachers, early childhood professionals, speech pathologists, speech pathology students and allied health professionals. Some of these workshops are tailored sessions for specific groups however, many of them are open to everyone. We are continually adding new training opportunities so check back for our regular updates. If you are interested in one of our regular workshop programs but can't see a workshop coming up please contact us for further details. Perhaps you have an idea for a workshop that could be addressed by our speech pathologists. We love to hear from organisations about new workshop opportunities!
