kani rrala is palawa kani (Tasmanian Aboriginal language) for ‘strong talk’.

During the first half of 2016, Speech Pathology Tasmania speech pathologists Courtney Dunbabin and Rosie Martin worked with three adolescent Aboriginal boys on language and literacy. The young men made amazing gains with this program of intensive, direct teaching of these empowering communication skills.
