Children's Speech - throughout the world

A short time ago, Children's Speech was published. This book was written over many years with my colleague Elise Baker. Since its publication it has been shared with colleagues and friends throughout the world. We have donated copies to our colleagues in Ghana and Vietnam for use in their speech therapy courses.  I have also thanked a Māori elder for the wisdom of his ancestors that has been included in the Preface:
Ui mai koe ki ahau he aha te mea nui o te ao,
Māku e kī atu he tangata, he tangata, he tangata!
Ask me what is the greatest thing in the world, I will reply:
It is people, it is people, it is people!
Sue Woodward and Prof Dung in Vietnam
Sharynne with Karen Wylie who has assisted with the development of the speech therapy course in Ghana (at the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics Conference in Dublin, Ireland in August)
Sharynne with a Maori elder (at the New Zealand Speech-language Therapists' Association conference in Auckland, NZ in September)
