Driven by a progressive faculty, the Ziauddin College of Speech Language Therapy requested TRC for a lecture for students. On 16 February 2009, Nida Alavi spoke to second year students about Early Intervention. The lecture covered several areas including the constraints of special education in Pakistan, the goals of early intervention and recommended practices. It was a pleasure to share, discuss and debate issues in the field with such a lively group of students who were keen to voice their opinions and raise questions.
The 4-year B.Sc programme at the Ziauddin College of Speech Language Therapy, is a pioneering endeavour in the field and seeks to serve the ever-growing demand for professionals supporting individuals with speech and language difficulties in Pakistan.
