Speech therapy supports children and adults who have difficulties* communicating, as well as eating and drinking.Communication difficulties can occur without reason, or be the result of injury to the brain, face and/or neck, or as part of a disability, such as autism or cerebral palsy.
Speech therapy can help people with these difficulties to attend school, find work and interact with their families and communities.
We are upskilling teachers and health workers who already work with children with communication difficulties and we are creating a university course to train Cambodian people to be speech therapists, using techniques and approaches that work in Cambodia. Find out more about what we are doing
