Article on speech sound disorders course posted as Caroline Bowen receives special award


By happy coincidence, I completed a new article reflecting on two days immersed in speech sound disorders with international expert Caroline Bowen just as Caroline was awarded life membership of Speech Pathology Australia at its National Conference in Darwin. She is pictured here being congratulated by Ros Neilson, Councillor for New South Wales.

Having known Caroline 'virtually' for many years, it was a pleasure to meet her at last at her two day 'Speech Sound Disorders – the Basics and Beyond II' course hosted by the Association of Speech & Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP) in the beautiful city of York. Reading my article will give you a sense of the contribution Caroline has made to promoting evidence based practice around the world, and of why she thoroughly deserves the highest honour of her own professional body.

Caroline is returning to the UK shortly to run three one day courses in London (18, 20, 22 July). She will then deliver two complementary one day courses (28, 29 July) in Durham, 'Spoiled for Choice – Therapy approaches for speech sound disorders in children' and 'Sound Reasoning: Therapy targets and techniques for children with speech sound disorders'. If you are interested in attending, there is more information here.

    Readers may be interested to watch my 16 minute documentary about children with speech disorders. It was produced in the 1980s, but the issues remain the same – and much more needs to be done. “Speaking Out – children with speech disorders”, can now be freely viewed on my YouTube channel at
