WHAT’S NEW

In classrooms and across practice settings, many different diagnostic terms have been used to refer to language learning problems observed in children. The lack of agreement in terminology, and diagnostic criteria, by researchers, speech-language therapists, paediatricians and educational professionals across settings has caused confusion to parents and various healthcare professions.
 
In June 2020, a special interest group on Terminology for Child Language Disorders (TCLD) was formed to address this issue. The TCLD group was led by a core team including Dr. Anita Wong from the University of Hong Kong, Mr. Ashley Ng from the Child Assessment Service, Department of Health, Ms. Joanna Cheung from the Speech Therapy Service Section, Education Bureau, and Ms. Jody Lam from the Hong Kong Association of Speech Therapists. The TCLD group included members from the four speech-language therapy training programs, speech-language therapists working for major service providers and private practice SLTs in Hong Kong.
 
After literature review and rounds of discussion, the TCLD group summarised the recommendations on the diagnostic terms to be used for child speech, language and communication disorders. HKAST full member may get the reference document, diagnostic label exercise and pre-recorded lecture (by Dr. Anita Wong) in the Members Corner of HKAST portal*.

We strongly recommend all speech-language therapists read the document, watch the video and complete the exercise. An online forum will be held for open discussion:

Date: 10 December 2021 (Friday) 
Time: 8:00-9:00 p.m.

*For speech-language therapists who are not HKAST full members, you may contact HKAST via email (hkast@speechtherapy.org.hk) to get the documents and video link.

【🎥言語治療知多啲- 我有想法未能說】
第四集:輔助溝通系統(AAC) - 成人篇 《用腳打字?》

大家有沒有想過,除了用雙手打字之外,還可用身體那個部分打字?
患有嚴重口語溝通困難的May,有良好的語言能力,能運用文字表達自己,但礙於手部肌能限制,未能用雙手打字或操作輔助溝通工具,而May的右腳則相對比較靈活,能用腳指操控智能電話與人溝通,用腳「打字」甚至「打機」都可以👍🏻
