rainbow

Each year, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) holds the Speech Therapy Week to raise public awareness of communication, swallowing, voice, stuttering and hearing disorders which afflict children and adults from across the spectrum of Singapore’s society.

Speech Therapy Week 2013 focuses on paediatric language and adult swallowing issues and highlights the crucial roles played by Speech and Language Pathologists in Singapore in the management of speech disorders.

During Speech Therapy Week, a series of public forum talks will be held on 26 October 2013 at the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre at The Central, Eu Tong Sen Street.

In addition, a Children’s Puppet Show will be held on 19 October 2013 at the Clementi Public Library to create awareness, from a child’s perspective, of speech, language and communication disorders they may encounter in schools. This show will comprise a series of mini-puppet shows that will present the issues in a manner and language that children can understand, and also include a puppet-making craft session.

Later in November, the Speech and Language Pathology Department at the CPAS will also be organising is a separate workshop for parents, caregivers and professionals on handling children with sensory problems. This half-day workshop will be conducted by Patricia Oetter, an occupational therapist, and Eileen W. Richter.
