Usually when the day of a profession is celebrated, the date is directly related to the opening of the university career, in our case it is not so. Our beautiful career was created on March 27, 1972, without the foreshadowing of what would happen a year later in our country.
The military dictatorship struck phono-audiology not only by interrupting the teaching process, but also by closing it down until March 1974, when classes were resumed in an atmosphere very different from normal classes, as not all the students who had started the course returned, some were forced to leave for their countries, others went into exile, and one of them was even arrested and disappeared.
In July 1974, classes were interrupted again with the possibility of a definitive closure. It was then that on November 22 of that year, by decree, the return to activities was authorized.
