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.

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.
