Speech pathology in Brazil

Yesterday Sarah Verdon (my PhD student) began her 5 month tour of the world to collect data on best practices in multilingual services for children with speech sound disorders. Her travels will take her to most continents.

Sarah began her trip by visiting the University of São Paulo where 25 students are admitted a year to study speech pathology. She met with Professor Haydee Fiszbein Wertzner, the head of the speech pathology department and Daniela Galea who works with bilingual Portuguese-English speaking children at international schools in São Paulo.
