Marjon (University of St Mark & St John) SLT students went onto the streets of Plymouth to spread the word about speech and language therapy. They set up a stand, which included GV merchandise, leaflets and a ‘post it’ board to put people’s most used/ favourite words on in Drakes Circus Shopping Centre on 22 and 23 October 2016.
Over that weekend they were visited by several hundred shoppers, all eager to learn more. Members of the public also shared their experiences regarding SLTs and communication difficulties with the students.
The stand was fully operational throughout the shopping centre’s opening hours, thanks to a team of ten students covering a variety of shifts.
