We are the Philippine Association of Speech Pathologists (PASP), an organization that seeks to work towards the advancement of Speech Pathology in the country.
Filipino speech pathologists are professionals that treat different types of communication & swallowing problems and work closely with people of all ages.
This year marks the 30th (Pearl) founding anniversary of the organization and we cordially invite you to our biggest event this year. On July 24-25, 2021 we will hold our 3rd Biennial National Convention entitled EMERGING TOGETHER: PASP Virtual Convention 2021.
The event will be graced by around 800 mixed participants mainly; speech-language pathologists (SLPs), allied professionals, doctors, teachers, and parents from Philippines & other parts of Asia. The 2021 PASP Convention theme, “Emerging Together” mirrors the adaptations the profession made to remain relevant and how we were able to overcome challenges through the years especially this pandemic through solidarity. The word “emerging” means to come into existence, which reflects innovations and discoveries brought about by our own resourcefulness and ingenuity. The word “together”, depicts the support given by our colleagues and the association, and how we would use these connections for future collaborations and synergies.
This year’s convention aims to open the discussion on pertinent issues (tele practice, disability rights and public health), introduce innovative practice patterns in the field and advocate for interprofessional collaboration practice. Furthermore, it offers an opportunity for collaboration, building connections and networking with different professionals and organizations. We hope that you can be part of PASP’s momentous event this year. Should you need more information about the event, please visit http://pasp.org.ph/emergingtogether2021/.
