2- day online webinar hosted by IASLT, facilitated by Equality SIG (9am - 4pm both days) Registration is now closed for this event.
Rachel Moore is Senior Speech and Language Therapist at the National Gender Service. She works with transgender, non-binary and gender questioning adults as a member of the NGS multi-disciplinary team. Prior to her appointment to this role in January 2019, Rachel worked for 7 years in a private capacity, promoting the essential role of SLT in trans healthcare and advocating for publicly available SLT for trans people. She was the founder of an award winning social enterprise, Express YOUR Gender, which provided low cost voice therapy and career support for trans people. Rachel is passionate about communication accessibility and sees communication as a human right.
The current focus of the Equality SIG is to build capacity among the SLT community in Ireland to provide inclusive and informed services to transgender/gender diverse clients, across the lifespan. We achieve this through two CPD offerings: skills training and peer support meetings. 30 SLTs from CAMHS teams around Ireland attended a 2 day training in March 2020. Our next training is for SLTs who wish to include transgender/gender diverse adults in their caseload. We offer our members two different quarterly peer support meetings for SLTs depending on whether you work with young people or adults. It is our hope to open up conversations about this rapidly evolving area, in collaboration with other SIGs. To make an enquiry about peer support or to become a member, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Chair of the Equality SIG is Rachel Moore, Senior Speech and Language Therapist, National Gender Service.
