Dear colleagues, co-workers and friends,
We are delighted to invite you to attend “Building Bridges”, the 14th Panhellenic – 1st International Congress on Speech and Language Therapy, organized by the Panhellenic Association of Logopedists -Speech and Language Therapists.
To improve clinical effectiveness all speech therapists, whether experienced or not, need to be knowledgeable about current theoretical approaches and the recent methods of treating speech disorders. In order to develop the skills that are necessary to meet the needs of each client, one needs to keep up with scientific advancements, but also be able to apply existing knowledge to modern and clinically proven techniques and familiarize one self with the use of new technologies.
The 14th Panhellenic-1st International Congress on Speech and Language Therapy aims to fulfill this need, and to offer speech therapists insightful knowledge. At the same time, the congress will provide the benefits of a high-level scientific meeting, where a wide range of internationally renowned speakers and prominent Greek and Turkish scientists have been invited to participate.
Another objective of this congress is to demonstrate that speech and language therapy is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary field. Doctors, psychologists, special educators, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, teachers create a unique network of scholars that will we have the opportunity to meet at the congress and exchange ideas and clinical experiences.

A keynote invited speaker will open each session, followed by the speakers, all exceptional and distinguished Greek and foreign researchers at the forefront of their particular field.
