This was a very informative workshop, providing a insight into the role of a speech and language therapist. It was especially useful to meet a number of people who have received speech and language therapy for different reasons and hear their comments first hand. If you are unsure about speech and language therapy as a career, then I would recommend this course as an excellent starting point.
