Showing Our Love for SLPs During Better Hearing and Speech Month

May 17, 2013 | by Kevin Self

We are nearing the end of Better Hearing and Speech Month and we continue to focus our attention on the people who make speech better everyday - Speech-Language Pathologists. To honor SLPs in the month of May, we are running a "Lingraphica Loves SLPs" campaign on Facebook and highlighting some of the ways we support the great work you are doing on behalf of adults with aphasia. If you're not already, tune in to Facebook and see how Lingraphica is showing our love for SLPs.

Free Continuing Educations Units (CEUs)

Lingraphica offers speech-language pathologists the opportunity to receive FREE CEUs* in one of three ways:

1. Attending a live webinar about our speech-generating devices
2. Watching a recorded class on the Web
3. Supervising a trial of a Lingraphica speech-generating device (SGD)

Free Training and Support

We provide SLPs with Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device training for all three of our SGDs: AllTalk, TouchTalk, and MiniTalk. Additionally, we offer a variety of other training and technical support options to help you work effectively and efficiently with your clients during their trials and therapy sessions. And, best of all, our Clinical Consultants are here to answer any clinical questions you may have.

Free Assessment Boards

Finding the most appropriate communication and therapy tools for adults with aphasia can be a daunting task. We pride ourselves on helping make that process as easy as possible. That's why, during the month of May, we are offering free assessment boards for those interested in determining which Lingraphica device is a good fit for your clients. In addition, to the assessment boards, we are offering a free training with one of our Clinical Consultants, who will walk you through how best to use the boards.

As Better Hearing and Speech Month comes to an end, we want to hear your stories and experiences. Share them on our blog, post to our Facebook page, or post images on Instagram or Twitter - @aphasiausersgroup. And stay tuned for what Lingraphica has in store for the month of June - Aphasia Awareness Month!

*Lingraphica CEU courses are approved by the Continuing Education Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
