The Information Evening Theme is “Speech Therapy for Children affected by Cleft“.
We are delighted to have eminent speaker Dr. Triona Sweeney , Adjunct Professor and Cleft Research Speech & Language Therapist.
From first sounds, to first words, to challenges faced and to challenges overcome, Dr Sweeney will cover all aspects of Speech Therapy as it relates to children born with a cleft. Dr. Sweeney is an inspiring, talented and passionate clinician who has guided families, students and peers through the world of Speech Language Therapy. Dr. Sweeney has recently moved to full time research. We have asked Dr. Sweeney to tell us about the new research project that she is leading. The research empowers parents & uses technology to improve the therapy experience for children. It is fair to say that the outcome of this project could change the lives of children born with cleft on these shores and across the world. Hear more, hear how you can help.
If you are a parent, grandparent, interested aunt or uncle, a young person who has come through the system and wants to know more, a young person who is interest in Speech Therapy or a fellow medical practitioner you will find this talk informative and fulfilling.
Admission is free.
