Education for SLPs in Ecuador
For the sixth year, the Speech and Hearing Sciences Department at Portland State University will offer a 6-week education abroad opportunity in Quito, Ecuador. The 2016 program will be from June 20 through July 29, 2016. This unique experience is for graduate students and professional SLPs. The experience is intended to improve Spanish skills and provide training in best practices for graduate students or certified SLP professionals working with Spanish-English bilingual clients. The program requires that participants have at minimum the equivalent of two years Spanish before participating.
The cost for this program is the same for in-state and out-of-state participants. You do not need to be a PSU student to participate. The deadline for application is March 15, 2016. Please contact Christina Gildersleeve-Neumann or Claudia Meyer with questions. We hope you can join us!
