你哋身為言語治療師都唔俾人講嘢!咁你出post嚟做咩?係咪你哋個主席俾人拉咗之後冇王管!而家發生咩事乜都唔理?做人已經唔可以咁你仲要學人做教育!諗住唔俾人講嘢就當冇事發生?預期斬腳趾避沙蟲不如去跟進下件事!還當時人一個公道!

近日有關網傳導師罵女童的新聞報導,事件引起各界人士關注,部分報章錯誤報導涉事導師為言語治療師,引起公眾誤會。涉事機構已證實片中人士並非言語治療師。惟本會發現不少公眾人士對不同專業的服務範疇存有疑問或誤解,而本會亦樂見業界同工透過不同渠道表達意見及建議。現希望透過發放以下資訊,讓公眾人士加深了解言語治療服務及言語治療師的專業資格。公眾亦可瀏覽本會網站(speechtherapy.org.hk)了解更多資訊。

若會員及公眾有任何查詢,歡迎以電郵聯絡我們: hkast@speechtherapy.org.hk

任何與言語治療專業操守及行為相關的疑問及投訴,亦可聯絡香港言語治療師公會info@hkist.org.hk 跟進。

多謝你們向公眾澄清,辛苦你們了

請問你哋業界嘅楊姑娘同黃老師做啲咁樣嘅行為你哋有咩睇法,善思成長發展中心,一而再再而三咁傷害小朋友整個家庭。 你哋業界點解唔出句聲

咁佢唔係治療師!佢入去上堂做乜呀?一句話唔係治療師就唔關你地事!同警察打完人話佢地唔係警察一樣姐! 好心你地得閒出黎話唔關你事.不如去關心下件事!幫下佢地仲好喇!

咁我想請問涉事中心負責人楊姑娘又是否係合資格的言語治療師呢?是否係你地協會成員呢?🤔🤔依家真係見過鬼都怕黑……

呢啲咁嘅協會完全都唔發聲,不知所謂。

麻煩,就呢次事件就已經發了電郵給你們, 我地想投訴有言語治療師專業失德, 希望你地盡快回覆

你內容離晒題,又冇重點,你要唔要治療一下自己先……先再幫你自己個專業發聲明 😅?

Clinical outcomes in Cleft Palate with or without Lip (CP+/-L) include dentition, facial growth, hearing, speech, language and feeding. There is also strong evidence of the impact of the condition on psychosocial factors, academic achievement and communicative participation. Even following primary palate repair, a significant proportion of individuals with CP+/-L will continue to have velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI). As a speech therapist working with individuals with CP+/-L, it is essential to be aware of the range of clinical outcomes and understand how they impact on the individual’s activities and participation. The role of the Speech Therapist begins from infancy till discharge in adulthood and extends to collaboration with members of the local medical team and professional communication with fellow Speech Therapists.

In Talk B, participants will learn about the intervention approaches for feeding difficulties in patients with CP+/-L as well as hunger induction trial in local patients developed oral aversion. Participants will also be introduced to evidence-based speech treatment approaches and cleft-specific components and techniques with case study examples. A brief overview of surgical and/or physical management of VPI will be given.

Date: 8 June 2022
Time: 7:00-9:30pm
Fee: $200 for members, $300 for non-members
Venue: Christian Family Service Centre, Auditorium, 3 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Kwun Tong
Capacity: 140

The role of the Speech Therapist begins from infancy till discharge in adulthood and extends to collaboration with members of the local medical team and professional communication with fellow Speech Therapists.

In Talk A, participants will be introduced to the Cleft Clinical Care Pathway and the range of clinical outcomes in CP+/-L with a focus on feeding, language and speech. Common feeding problems found in this patient group, as well as evaluation with corresponding techniques and tools would be discussed. Participants will be introduced to the evidence on language development in children with CP+/-L, and recommendations for assessment. Participants will also learn about speech parameters of Cleft Palate/VPI, approaches to analyses, and current published perceptual speech framework tools. There will be a brief overview of instrumental investigations of VPI.

PS: This seminar will provide more in-depth knowledge and different content from the Assessment Tool talk which was held by CUHK.
