Prince Sultan Grand Hall
Dear colleagues and guests:
As the president of Saudi Society for Speech Language Pathology and Audiology (SSSPA) Conference 2019, it is my great pleasure and honor to extend an invitation to you to attend and participate in the 2nd SSSPA Conference. On behalf of the Saudi Society for Speech Language Pathology and Audiology (SSSPA) and the organizing committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Riyadh!
With a firm belief in the necessity of team work for the advancement of science, research and evidence-based patient care, we are particularly excited this year that we are planning a special scientific program which encompasses different professionals working in the field. Our conference this year will particularly emphasize the updated evidence-based practice bases of clinical assessment and management and provide clinicians with hands-on training relevant to their practice which could include technology/device specific skills. Audiologists, Otologists, Neuro-otologists and Speech Language Pathologists/Therapists are all invited to participate and submit abstracts for free papers, clinical case presentations, and poster presentations on all aspects relevant to Audiology, Balance, Speech Language Pathology, communication, feeding and swallowing, Otology/Neuro-otology, Implantable auditory devices and Aural rehabilitation. Our scientific program will include key note talks from prestigious figures, round table discussions, invited papers, free papers and posters. In addition to that we will be running pre-program hands-on workshops. We aim at providing an opportunity for audiologists, speech language pathologists/ therapists, physicians/surgeons, educators, hearing scientists/therapists and hearing aid dispensers to converse, collaborate, network and exchange ideas and knowledge. A platform will also be provided to leaders of the hearing industry and international manufacturers to present and highlight new technologies and advancements in the field.
I look forward to welcoming you to Riyadh at what promises to be a most stimulating and enjoyable event!
