What You Will Learn

The program theme is “Speech-Language-Hearing Services in Peru: History, Disorders, and Delivery.” We will be primarily based in Lima, visiting local rehabilitation centers, universities, and museums. Local professors and practitioners will lecture on the definition of communication disorders in Peru, as well as the services provided to clients. We will travel to Machu Picchu and hike the ruins, learning about the history, language, and artifacts of the Incas. Students be housed with local families in Lima, and immersed in the culture. This experience will give students a foundation for becoming culturally competent service providers.
