BUSHkids Charity of Choice for PHARMACY FIRST  
Pharmacy First have chosen BUSHkids as their charity of choice for their annual community donation.
 Recognising the great work that BUSHkids do, Emerald and Mount Isa Pharmacy First have donated a Diagnostic Evaluation of Articulation and Phonology (DEAP) Kit worth $1,000 to our Emerald and Mount Isa Centres. The DEAP kit is an assessment that our Speech Pathologist will be able to use to detect and differentiate between articulation problems and phonological delays/disorders in young children between the ages of 3 and 9 years. Whilst standard articulation assessments only evaluate one aspect of the child’s speech system, the DEAP provides a quick, accurate, and comprehensive overview of the child’s articulation, phonological processes, and oral motor skills. The assessments large colorful pictures also help to engage young children. The DEAP is time and cost effective and provides an evidence base for clinical decision making that promotes effective intervention by guiding the selection of appropriate therapy types and goals.THANK YOU Pharmacy First!
