Today was the first day of the Advanced Cleft Palate, Speech, & Feeding Institute at Komfo Anokye Hospital.
Today was the last day with our colleagues at the professional development retreat.
Our second day of PD was a co-op of students, teachers, and directors creating academically integrative approaches. And a dance finale.
Today, we left Accra and began our journey to Kumasi.
Today was an exciting day filled with fabric and bead buying galore!
Today was our last day working at Korle Bu Hospital. We had the opportunity to visit the audiology department and observe newborn hearing screenings.
Again, we separated into groups of 4-5 students to assess, evaluate, and provide speech and language therapy to clients with a variety of disorders, including cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, aphasia, language delay, and more. We focused on parent-child interaction and creating home programs with strategies for the parents to work with their children. We then had lunch at the Dean’s Guest House, where a tradition Ghanaian dish (Ground Nut Soup with Fufu) was prepared for us. Afterwards, we went to the Accra market place to explore and buy souvenirs.
Goodbye for now!
Today, we left Kumasi at 4am and began the journey back to Accra.
Today we woke up at the hotel within Mole National Park, where an elephant greeted us on our way to breakfast.
