The congress aims at showing the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of research and therapy approaches to speech and communication disorders/impairments. The congress’s main goal is not only to provide an overview of the recent developments in the field of speech and language therapy, but also to try to focus on every scientific aspect, such as prevention, therapy, evaluation, as well as on the most promising therapeutic future applications of current research and technology.
A number of influential researchers from abroad have been invited to participate at the congress.
The Panhellenic Association of Logopedists-Logotherapists has always aspired to broaden its collaboration with other associations of speech therapists. The participation of the Turkish Association of Speech and Language Therapists (DKTD) is inaugurating a new era of common effort at promoting the field of speech and language therapy.
The congress is addressed to a wide array of experts including mental health specialists (speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers, etc.), medical doctors (psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, neurologists, child neurologists, pediatricians, ear, nose and throat experts, and voice specialists), education professionals (nursery school teachers, primary school teachers, special education teachers), linguists, neuropsychologists, research scientists, and students.
