California Speech-Language-Hearing Association (CSHA)

CSHA’s International Professional Task Force in collaboration with Therapy Abroad is offering an exciting opportunity for up to 20 CSHA members to participate in a robust professional exchange experience in London, England on October 13 – October 21, 2018. The exchange program will introduce various practices and perspectives in their national healthcare services, clinical research and practice, assistive technology and integrative education in the host country. Seeking a deeper understanding of the endeavors and approaches of each international partner, participants will be empowered to analyze the pros and cons of various approaches to communication sciences in cross-cultural settings and synthesize their observations into actionable interventions back home.

Participants will be granted a ‘behind the scenes’ look at each International Partner, allowing for a rich, first-hand analysis of the services (obstacles and successes) provided in context. Participants will contribute to a variety of discussions around cross-sectorial and cross-cultural collaboration in public health, deepening their understanding of reciprocal work agreements and the processes through which diverse SLP professionals can spread their experience and knowledge across the globe.

Program pricing for the October 13-21, 2018 CSHA-UK International Professional Exchange is $3,750 and is available to the first 20 CSHA members placing a non-refundable $1000 deposit. Price includes flights to and from LAX, all excursions, boutique hotel (double occupancy), exchanges, donations, transportation, some meals and Therapy Abroad and CSHA facilitators.

To register for this program you must be a CSHA member in good standing. Registration only takes about 10 min. Please be prepared to complete a brief online information form that includes emergency contact information, medical information, and requires you to attach a current copy of your California State SLP license or other credentials, and a CV or resume.
