A warm welcome to SALTS Insider, from your friendly editors
We’re back. (Well, kind of.)
We have a new name, a new look, new platform, new goals, new stories, new editors, and hopefully, many more new readers. With all the new, we don’t know if “we’re back” is all that accurate. Perhaps we should say we’ve had a really thorough makeover. And like any homeowner of a freshly renovated house, we can’t wait to welcome you in and show you around.
But this endeavour is not about us. SALTS Insider is about you and our local speechie world. The Allied Health Professional Council (AHPC) reported that as of December 2021, we had 778 registered speechies practising on our sunny little island. Even with our new grads and students, our circle is tiny. Yet, to be honest, outside our own socio-professional bubble, many of us hardly know what anyone else is up to.
So, let’s get personal and meet our own — the ones who care, the doers, thinkers, movers, shakers, researchers, our peers, the everyday speechie, the speechie-to-be, and hopefully, you. We can’t wait to delve into your thoughts, hear different voices, celebrate our achievements and maybe, along the way, find the blueprint of our community.
But for now, we’ll keep things simple. A new post every month or so. Each feature will either showcase our people, their perspectives or report their latest research efforts. Once a quarter, you can expect us to slide into your mailbox with a collection of the latest posts. And if you’ve got an idea to contribute, send it our way at email@example.com.
We reckon we’re in for a ride and we’d love for you to join us in this madcap journey. Hopefully, you’ll discover something, feel connected, have an ah-ha moment, be inspired, pause and think, or (at the very least) be entertained.
Welcome to SALTS Insider. Settle in, get comfy, and we’ll see you real soon.
