Book of the Year Awards 2012

Each year, Speech Pathology Australia awards three Australian authors the “Best Book for Language Development” in the categories – Young Children, Lower Primary, Upper Primary and Indigenous Children.  

Each award is based on the book’s appeal to children, interactive quality and ability to assist speech pathologists and parents in communication and literacy development.

The intention of Speech Pathology Australia’s Book of the Year Awards is to:
  • Enhance people’s awareness of the role speech pathologists play in literacy development.
  • Gradually develop a nationally recognised pool of books that speech pathologists can recommend for the development of oral language and speech and/or sound awareness.
  • Promote the Association with the Book of the Year Awards ceremony.
The 2012 Shortlist has been announced. Winners will be awarded at a ceremony on 16 October.
