Parent Information - Young People with communication Disorders
Caroline Bowen PhD is an Australian Speech-Language Pathologist. Her
clearly written, user-friendly and regularly updated web site provides
theoretically sound information for families, students and SLP professionals
about speech, language, voice, fluency and pragmatic disorders in children.
Fact is clearly differentiated from opinion throughout the site.
Caroline has added a fascinating article on young people with communication
disorders to her web site. This article includes information information
for high school and University students and their parents and teachers
Private hell or safe haven?.
For students with communication disorders, high school and university
can feel like an interminable ordeal. But when supplied with appropriate
information, insight, resources and time, and input from parents when
necessary, teachers can provide structure, support, encouragement and
an exciting learning environment for them.
Rather than being a student's private hell, school or university can become
a welcoming safe haven and a place to develop and shine.
