The Language-Learning Disability Special Interest Group provides a prize (to the value of a SPA membership) each year to the student(s) who produce the most impressive project (either Honours or Pass level) related to our interest in students with language-learning disabilities. 


The Language-Learning Disability Special Interest Group is pleased to offer a student prize to a final-year student from each university Speech Pathology course completing a research project on a topic related to language and learning. 


Project Criteria:

The project must be of a high standard, be research-based, be focused on school-age language/literacy and have a practical/clinical focus whilst contributing to the professional knowledge base, ie a complete research project – by preference and including collecting own data.
