Our training sessions are designed to support and up-skill people who are working directly with children who have communication difficulties; and give them access to networks, forums and resources, which help them to support students with communication difficulties within Cambodia.
Research & Resource Development
Because Cambodia does not yet have a speech therapy profession, research and pilot projects are important for working out the best way of “doing” speech therapy in this country, instead of simply transplanting models of practice from Western countries. The purpose of our resource development is to produce suitable Khmer language resources, appropriate for the Cambodian context, for use in speech therapy clinical, university and community settings.
University Course & Development of Speech Therapy Profession
We are working on creating a network of advisors and those with a background in Cambodian university settings to help set up a certified speech therapy course at the university level in Cambodia, so that the profession can be grown and led by Cambodians. We are also building a network of speech therapists and Cambodian people trained in speech therapy techniques to begin creating a professional association.
By donating today, you are taking action to help grow speech therapy in Cambodia and bring therapy to children in need and their families.
