CDIS students complete study-abroad experience in Mexico

Six graduate students from the Woolfolk School of Communication Sciences and Disorders took a study-abroad trip to Quereetaro, Mexico, May 19-June 2, 2018.

The students, with varying degrees of Spanish proficiency, provided Spanish speech and language screenings, full evaluations and language enrichment activities to children in the area. They also provided evaluations and consultation for treatment with three intellectually impaired adults. Students were able to receive clinic hours required for their degree. The group was welcomed by the Sisters of Divine Providence at Casa Moye, who provided food and lodging.

The group was led by OLLU faculty members Casey Taliancich-Klinger, PhD, assistant professor of communication disorders, and Patricia Kimes, MEd, associate clinical professor of communication disorders.
