Cambodia: Week Thirteen

Our final week working in Cambodia.

Each year, the speech and language therapists from the City University voluntary project, evaluate what progress has been made in each of the settings they work in and consider the best ways to continue to provide sustainable input in future years. Part of this week was spent documenting our findings and recommendations in the form of a final report. This will be read by the heads of department in each of the settings we have worked in, as well as by a committee of speech and language therapists based in the UK, who…

Cambodia: Weeks Ten and Eleven

In week 10, we finalised the new Khmer Infant Speech Screen for the Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), a result of both Samnang’s and our own work and many hours trying to get our heads around the Khmer (Cambodia’s language) sound inventory. The idea to create a new screen came from Samnang, who identified a need for something more fun and engaging for young children who come for speech assessments. The flip book has a selection of cartoon pictures which Samnang will look through with the children, with the hope that they will name some…
