Bachelor SALT Students learn Atypical Language Development in Early Childhood

Volunteer lecturer Associate Professor Diane Jacobs recently taught Atypical Language Development in Early Childhood the Bachelor in Rehabilitation Techniques with specialization in Speech and Language Therapy at University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy (DUMTP) in Da Nang. She went to Vietnam with her family and her son Eddie enjoyed being involved as well. Diane reported:

“It was a pleasure meeting the students and hearing their stories of how they came to study Speech Patholgy. I felt that as a group we grew across the 10 days of teaching with the students becoming more engaged as we progressed through the material. I could also see that teaching the undergraduate students was different to my experience with the masters students in HCMC as they haven’t had the background of working, often as a clinician in a hospital. I expect that next year they will be in a very different learning space.

Dr Thuy was outstanding in her support of me, not just with regards to teaching but welcoming me to Da Nang. Dr Thuy’s colleagues, many of whom are studying Sp path, were also amazingly generous with their time and support.

Finally I really appreciated the time of the physios especially Mr Jung in giving me tips for Eddie’s gross motor skills. He is now commando crawling which is fantastic.”
