I finished graduate school in May 2012 with a degree in speech-language pathology. I’m working in a Zambian orphanage with some precious babies and fantastic aunties (caregivers) from May 15- July 24, 2012. This is the third time I have visited this orphanage; the previous two times were in 2009 and 2011, and I stayed for six weeks each time. I traveled with my graduate program both times in a summer clinical experience called HIZ-Path. For more information, please view this inspiring 10-minute documentary that was filmed during the summer of 2011: http://vimeo.com/31941968.

  1. Ashley – I am a speech pathologist in Texas and saw your blog through ASHAsphere. I wanted to let you know about a group of speech pathologist and other health care providers that I’m currently working with. The group is called CLASP International (Connective Link Among Special-needs Programs) and we are starting a graduate level speech pathology program this fall 2012 at the University of Lusaka in Lusaka, Zambia. You can read more about what we are doing and how to get involved at our website: http://claspinternational.org/. We will be starting the next program in Kenya and have many requests from other countries to come start SLP graduate programs in their areas. I just thought you’d be interested based on your desire for this type of programming in Zambia!
