Today I had the opportunity to visit Dr Oanh, one of only two speech therapists in Ha Noi (a city of over 7 million people!). Dr Oanh is a cleft palate surgeon who undertook the speech therapy course at Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University, run by the Trinh Foundation. I was her lecturer in 2013 and it was a pleasure to catch up with her in Ha Noi. She has just begun her PhD considering appropriate speech therapy assessment and intervention for Vietnamese children with cleft lip and palate.
