Speech and Language Therapy Done Right is Social Justice Work

Join the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM) for a free online talk by Warda Farah on speech and language therapy and social justice, taking place Tuesday February 1st, at 6.00pm (UK time).

Speech and Language Therapy Done Right is Social Justice Work

Our profession cannot move to the future without confronting and acknowledging its racist and colonial knowledge base. We know that children from Black backgrounds are overrepresented as having Speech & Language Impairments, due to biased assessment protocols. We know that our current models, practice base & service delivery is not good enough to bring about equitable change for these children/families. This will be a personal talk sharing my journey in trying to address the above issues and how I believe that we can all use our SLT skills to create meaningful change and social impact.

Warda Farah (BSc, PGCert, HCPC, MRCSLT) is a Speech and Language Therapist and Founder of Language Waves. Language Waves specialises in using an array of methods to provide culturally diverse therapeutic input for schools and local communities. The service was specifically set up to address the barriers that “minority” families face when accessing speech and language therapy services.
