Earthspeak's 4th trip to San Miguel de Allende

In February 2014 Earthspeak made its 4th visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. For the past two years, we have been developing sustainable community mentor-based speech correction and a cleft palate team care model for individuals in need of such services in this community.

Earthspeak continues in Mexico

Continuing on in Mexico, EARTHSPEAK opened another site in the state of Guanajuato in May 2012. The site works through a partnership with Patronato Pro Niños (a charitable medical and dental organization based in San Miguel de Allende), the state Desarrollo Integral de La Familia (DIF), and Hospital General of San Miguel. The goal of the program is to train professionals and parents in the care of children with cleft palate.

Visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

RSF-EARTHSPEAK was invited to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, by Patronato Pro Niños, a charitable organization based in San Miguel that serves many children in the state of Guanajuato. The trip took place from May 5-12, 2012. EARTHSPEAK team participants were Kathi Hoffer and Andi Jobe. The trip was done in association with Desarrollo Integral de La Familia (DIF), the state-run organization that deals with issues that affect the health, education and welfare of children and families.

EARTHSPEAK/Rotoplast pilot project in Mexico

February 2010, Oaxaca, Mexico. The pilot project (approved by the Rotaplast Board in 2008) involved developing a model for Rotaplast speech pathologists to provide follow-up speech therapy to Rotaplast patients who have had late repair of their cleft palates. The site was selected based on the availability of mentors, clients, and infrastructure through local Rotarians, Departamento Integral de la Familia (DIF), and local health professionals to provide outreach, speech camp, and follow-up.
