Creating the Vietnamese Speech Assessment

This week Thị Thanh Xuân (Xuân) is visiting Charles Sturt University in Bathurst. One of the major aims of her visit is to work on developing the Vietnamese Speech Assessment with my PhD student, Phạm Thị Bền (Bền) and myself. We started the visit with imagining what the best assessment could look like by viewing my collection of speech assessments from around the world and considering the following article:
McLeod, S., & Verdon, S. (2014). A review of 30 speech assessments in 19 languages other than English. American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, 23(4), 708-723.
The collaboration between Ben and Xuan has been exceptional and I know that a great resource will be created.
