Finally, the II International Congress of our Society will start on September 22nd 2021. After successive postponements, the board decided to hold the II SPTF INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS, from September 22nd to 26th 2021, completely online, considering this pandemic period of Sars-Cov2 which is still unstable and restrictive.
Leaving the comfort zone and turning obstacles into opportunities, we welcome the challenge of holding this Society’s first online congress. We’ve created a fantastic programme just for you, based on the previous programme disclosed, however taking the opportunity that this virtual reality brought giving it more intensity and scope. We’ve designed a broad, challenging, holistic, current and multidisciplinary programme with a vision to the future, in order to satisfy both face-to-face and telepractice model.
We have 7 workshops that will take place on September 22nd which you can attend live or, if you prefer, later. This is followed by three and a half days with 11 conferences, 6 roundtables, communications, posters and a visit to our partners that keeps us updated on materials, training, equipment, among others. It will be a huge congress! We will also have surprises because after all the language of science also has common grounds with the language of affections.
And because SPTF must also share the History of Speech and Language Therapy and there is no present or future without a past, it is with great honour that we tell you the story of Speech and Language Therapist Suzete Carmona Dias, Honorary President of this Congress, a sweet, kind and humble person whose contribution to Speech and Language Therapy and training hundreds of colleagues, is highly relevant and truly inspiring.
SPTF is a society with hopes and dreams: the hope of an absolute professional union, the dream of elevating Speech and Language Therapy and increase its visibility. And for that we need your contribution.
Undoubtedly it is time to unify and demonstrate that union.
We believe it is our responsibility to embody SPTF and together give SPTF the strength to succeed and thrive. The way in which each one of us contributes to this affirmation of strength and power is materialized through our presence. We would very much like to constitute a historical landmark in the History of Portuguese Speech and Language Therapy! For that we need the presence of all Portuguese Speech and Language Therapists as well as colleagues from other countries.
Together we are stronger! Let’s make history!
We are waiting for you!
