Training videos for Ukraine

Our colleagues from Ukraine have asked Communication Therapy International (CTI), ESLA (European Speech and Language Association) and IALP (International Association of Communication Sciences and Disorders) for support, by providing videos that give information about how to support people with specific types of communication and swallowing impairment. They are looking specifically for videos on the following topics:

  1. TBI, resulting in communication and cognitive impairments
  2. Children with Selective mutism (related to trauma)
  3. Dyslexia and/ or developmental language difficulties
  1. Dysphagia, (either paediatric or adult focused)
  2. Acquired stuttering.

The videos must be:

  • maximum 15 minutes long
  • intended for those without specialist knowledge (e.g., teachers, medics, nurses, physiotherapists, family members) i.e., not aimed at SLT/Ps  

If you have any videos that you think might be suitable and for which you have appropriate permission to translate into Ukrainian and to show in the public domain, please could you complete the Excel spreadsheet:  Ukraine training videos log.xlsx

Our Ukrainian colleagues will review the videos and, if appropriate, arrange for  translation. The videos will be uploaded to a  YouTube channel and the  links  will be made publicly available.  

Thank you CTI, ESLA, IALP

Speech and Language Therapist needed in Cambodia

An SLT is sought for a post in Cambodia – see details below from Indigo International:

We are looking for a speech and language therapist to join our team at Indigo International in Cambodia. We are a multidisciplinary clinic based in Phnom Penh working predominantly with children and families, but also with adults. Our clients are from a range of backgrounds, both expat and local, and with a wide range of difficulties.

You would join our team of psychologists, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists, picking up an existing caseload from a therapist who is leaving. The work is paid sessionally so this would mean that you would be able to start with a good sized caseload and income. Sessional work also means that you are in charge of the hours you work and the size of caseload you would like to take on.

We are looking for someone to join our team as soon as possible.
