Finding Their Voice: Exploring Historical and Contemporary Speech-Language Therapy in England

Winter Term 2024-2025

Course Description:

As depicted in the 2014 film The King’s Speech, King George VI famously declared, “I have a right to be heard. I have a voice!” And thanks to speech therapy services in 1920s London, the king did indeed find his voice. This class explores the changing world of healthcare through the lens of speech-language therapy services. You will meet with therapists and advocates for speech therapy while also visiting the Royal College of Speech Language Pathology. This class will help you understand the experiences of speech-language patients and provide perspectives on aspects of the British National Health Service to compare and contrast with the “open-market” healthcare system in the U.S.
