A Day at Meath School with Dr. Caroline Bowen

On 23rd October the Speech and Language Therapy team at I CAN’s Meath School were delighted to welcome Dr. Caroline Bowen, a leading authority on Speech and Language Pathology, all the way from Australia.

Dr. Caroline Bowen delivered an informative and thought-provoking course to over 70 speech and language therapists from across the UK. The course, titled ‘Evidenced Based Interventions for Children with Severe Speech Sound Disorders’, looked at the assessment, diagnosis, and importantly, the most effective treatment for children with a variety of speech sound difficulties. The focus of the day was on using the latest, most up to date evidence and research from around the world. Everyone went away enthused and excited to put into practice all the ideas discussed on the day. It was an opportunity for everyone to consider their own practices and reflect on why they are carried out the way they are, and what can be done to improve therapy for more effective outcomes for the children we work with on a daily basis.  It was also a brilliant opportunity for speech and language therapists from all over the UK to meet up and share their own ideas and developments.
