Listening, understanding, and speaking skills are important for good literacy. Speech pathologists work with children and families to help to build the foundations on which literacy skills develop and help support a healthy transition into literacy. 

Meet your local speech pathologist, enjoy a reading of one of Speech Pathology Australia's Book of the Year winning books and find out more about how you can support your child's language and literacy development at home. 

This event is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 3-5 years old. 

Dr Kylie Smith is a speech pathologist with over 20 years' experience and has worked with clients of all ages, with a range of communication disorders, in both Australia and the United Kingdom. In addition to working clinically, Kylie has lectured speech pathology students at the University of Melbourne, and graduate speech pathologists on stuttering and evidence-based treatments. She has authored many papers, articles, and blogs related to stuttering, and has been an invited guest on ABC radio. 

This event will be presented via zoom. To join you will need an internet-enabled computer, tablet or smartphone. The Zoom meeting ID will be sent to the email address you registered with one hour prior to the start of the session.
