Speech Therapy Volunteering Overseas with Projects Abroad
Volunteering in the field of speech therapy abroad is a worthwhile experience. You will be helping support the lives of some of the poorest people in the developing world. Not only this, but you can use this experience to help further your career in speech therapy.
Speech Therapy Volunteering
Speech Therapy volunteers work mainly with children and young adults who have physical and/or mental disabilities. By helping them to improve their communication skills you will also be helping improve their quality of life and their future prospects.
You may also use speech therapy to help some individuals with integration into mainstream society. You will be working in a developing country and may work in conditions you are not used to. Funding may be poor and the facility may lack basic equipment.
You will, however, be working alongside qualified and dedicated senior staff who will appreciate your support and will ensure your time here is well spent and worthwhile.
