Enlightning Talks Speech Language Therapists

After a short hiatus, we have decided to re-vamp the Enlightning talks by having a change of venue. The evening will be an opportunity for informal, fun, cheap and interesting CPD at the cafe on spike island in Bristol. It is also a brilliant opportunity to meet and network with local colleagues. A lightning talk is a short presentation by a Speech and Language Therapist who may come from a range of backgrounds, including paediatric, adult and learning disability. The event is open to all Speech and Language Therapists and students. Talks that will be presented on the evening include: Paediatric and adult feeding tubes An investigation into the relationship between gaze aversion and cognitive load in people who stammer A new website for parents of children with SLT needs “Is Positive Intention a useful concept in the treatment of chronic functional symptoms?”   Tracheo-oesophageal valves in laryngectomy patients Research project on the terminology used around‘medically unexplained’ oropharyngeal dysphagia 'Social communication rehabilitation after brain injury: getting out of the clinic room and into the pub' The lightening talks are 5 minutes long, with a maximum of 2 minutes for questions afterwards.

There will be up to 10 speakers, with the opportunity for a drink and networking once the talks have concluded.  The cost of your ticket also includes one refreshment from the cafe. We are looking to recruit presenters, with topics being based on clinical information within the field. For example, therapy approaches, current research, case studies, audits, AAC, technology and unusual conditions. Presentations can be verbal or using PowerPoint. Previous presentations have included: the CITCEN toolkit, early phonological development in Welsh-English bilingual children, Expiratory Muscle Strength Training and puberphonia following brain injury.  If you would like to present at the evening or have any questions, please contact [email protected] or [email protected] Please see the spike island website for further information about travel and parking: https://www.spikeisland.org.uk/plan-your-visit/cafe/ Please note that travel costs will not be reimbursed.
