International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics
Board members of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics took time during their two-day board meeting to discuss their involvement with the ICP. Written in a range of languages—Dutch, Italian, Arabic, Maltese, Chinese, and Swedish—each board member wrote a speech bubble about the importance of communication.
