Collaboration with Humanity and Inclusion: Encouraging the use of digital technologies in speech therapy in Vietnam

The above picture shows Kate Margetson and Dr. Cao Bích Thủy (Head of Rehabilitation Department, Da Nang University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy) with the TalkTablet AAC app, 2015

The ongoing collaboration between TFA and HI facilitated a needs assessment of AAC in Vietnam. Based on the results of the needs assessment, a report was prepared. Since then, HI have been acting on the recommendations from the report. These include the translation of apps into Vietnamese, training in high tech AAC for professionals and family members, and developing networks of support for professionals.

  • Talk Tablet app has been translated into Vietnamese and was launched in November 2020
  • Since the launch, training workshops have been provided by experienced speech and language therapists
  • Once having attended the training, participants are provided with a code to access the app. This ensures that only trained personnel can access the technology. The app is now being used in several hospitals across Vietnam
  • Information about the app is continuing to be rolled out in an awareness building campaign.
  • The second app Alpha Topics from Tactus therapy was translated into Vietnamese and released in March 2021. This app will be offered with the same processes; attendance at training will allow participants to access the app.
