their clinic, school, hospital or other institution. However, when
distributing resources in this way, they must NOT be changed in any way,
and any credits to us/the author must be left intact.

in any other way; if in doubt about any intended use of the resources,
contact us for advice.

have been received, they will be checked for suitability/quality as soon
as possible and your annual membership created accordingly.
Free membership in
exchange for these resources is entirely at the discretion of Speechland.

to justify the membership, we will notify you as soon as possible with an
explanation, and give you opportunity to submit additional or amended
resources you agree that you (a) own the intellectual rights to them (b)
are happy for copyright to be transferred to Speechland (provided that
they are of sufficient quality to be published, as above).
