Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce this Motor Speech Conference: 'Speech therapy, is it worth the effort?'

Traditionally, our motor speech conferences offer you a balanced mix of state-of-the-art knowledge, national and international expertise, practical information, recent and clinically relevant study results and an update on ongoing research.

The focus of this edition is on speech therapy in motor speech disorders, which is often very challenging. Special attention is paid to articulation therapy and computerized treatment modalities. Other topics are cerebral palsy, prosody, special conditions and communicative participation.

New in this edition is the Question & Answer session where you can ask keynote speaker Joe Duffy and all other experts present, your long burning questions. To make sure that this session is a success, we would like to ask you to send in as many questions as possible in advance. You can do this easily by the ‘Question-button’ on the left. All questions, small and big, are welcome!

We hope to see you in October at the Antwerp University Hospital,

The organizing committee
