AGM Formal Notice to Members and Registration The Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists (IASLT) encourages all members to participate in the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday, May 26th 2022. The meeting will be held virtually.
The communication disability Aphasia has garnered much media attention recently. In recent coverage, it has been inaccurately described as a cognitive disorder.
There has been significant media focus nationally and internationally on aphasia given the recent statement detailing actor Bruce Willis diagnosis of aphasia. This focus has shone a welcome public light and gives us an opportunity to promote awareness and understanding of Aphasia.
Many thanks to everyone who virtually attended our 'Decision Support Service: What, When and Why' event recently. Since the event concluded, we have been inundated with requests from people who were unable to make it. The recordings of interviews and videos are now available.
