Cambodia 2013: Final Week

So I've been reading back over previous blog entries that myself and Priyanka have written over the last three months, and most of them talk about how quickly time has been going! And now it is actually all over! The time has absolutely flown by, three months sounds like a long time, and I suppose it is a quarter of a year, but I don't think either of us thought it would go so quickly. It feels like it's been a bit of a blur, but we've accomplished a lot and we are both feeling proud of ourselves.

Our final…

Cambodia 2013: Week Eleven

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Week 11 of our Cambodia Speech-Language Therapy Adventure! Can you believe that this is our penultimate week out here? We can't!
As you can imagine, we are starting to wrap things up out here but somehow that has landed us with more work than ever. Aside from our regular stream of patients, our week has also been full of meetings, reports and final touches.

 

We are pleased to announce that we have (finally!) finished the filming and editing of our brand-new Cleft-Speech Information Video. The video…

Cambodia 2013: Week Nine

Hello folks!

We have just completed week 9 of 12 out here in Cambodia and can't believe how fast time has flown! It seems like just yesterday we were writing to you about settling-in and finding our niche...and now it's almost over!

Here's what we've been up to:

Lights! Camera! Action!
Last week we really sank our teeth into our video project. As most of you know, this video is designed to give basic speech development advice to parents of cleft lip/palate children.

We did a lot of collaborative thinking with our Cambodian Speech Advisors and realized that many parents…

Cambodia 2013: Weeks Seven & Eight

Hello folks!

We hope this blog entry finds you all well and gearing up for the Christmas season. It was beautiful and balmy this weekend on our trip to Battambang but we are both missing the pre-Christmas excitement back home!

Much has happened over the past two weeks so let us catch you up:
Several weeks ago at CSC, we met an 8 year old boy with a unilateral (single-sided) cleft lip and palate. His clefts had been repaired a long time ago but his speech was severely nasal and he had misplaced articulation (e.g. he was putting his tongue…

Cambodia 2013: Week Six

This week has been a week all about the importance of Multidisciplinary Team Working.

Priyanka and I still had our regular settings, so on Monday and Tuesday we saw a couple of patients at CSC and began properly getting stuck into planning with Samnang for our video. Wednesday saw us at Military Hospital giving early speech sound advice to a Mum with an 18 month old with a recently repaired palate.

But on Thursday myself and Priyanka had been invited to a lunchtime meeting organised by an NGO called Friends of Cleft in…
