On Speaking Terms: Eight Centuries of Communication Disabilities

 

Friday, 6 September 2019, 2 – 4pm 

Communication is at the heart of who we are as human beings and communication disorders reflect the diversity of our humanity. As the Department of Clinical Speech and Language Studies in Trinity College Dublin celebrates 50 years of educating speech and language therapists in Ireland, this exhibition provides a glimpse into eight centuries of communication disabilities. The words and phrases, when viewed within the historical and textual context, provide a window into how these disorders were problematized, understood and managed.

This seminar celebrates the launch of an exhibition in the Long Room, entitled On Speaking Terms: Eight centuries of communication disabilities

Details
In recent decades, laryngeal manual therapy (LMT) techniques have become 
valuable treatments for functional dysphonia. A combination of LMT and
vocal exercises can generate rapid improvements in the treatment of voice disorders.

In this course, participants will learn practical skills for both
assessment and treatment of muscle tension in the laryngeal area. The
evidence and rationale behind laryngeal manual therapy will be discussed. Anatomy and physiology of the larynx and its surrounding muscles will be
examined extensively. During the hands-on sessions, participants will practice the techniques under supervision.

The course contains two modules of two days each (October and December), with a consolidation period of learning and practice lies in between. Participants must attend all course dates.

Refund/Cancellation Policy 

Refunds will be given up to 14 days from date of purchase on bookings made on or before the 23rd August 2019

Please note: This course requires a minimum of 22 participants for the course to run and if we do not meet the minimum requirements the course will be cancelled, participants will be notified in advance, and full refunds will be issued.
