Speech Pathology student placement in Katherine

I had the pleasure of spending last Tuesday with a group of four speech pathology students from Uni of Sydney. They are doing a six week placement at a Katherine primary school but had two days for orientation in Darwin first. One of the aims of the placement is to partially address the gaps in speech pathology services for Katherine kids. At present, there are 1.4 public speech pathologists for the entire Katherine region! The students seem very supportive of each other and I was impressed with their enthusiasm to learn. They are keeping a blog of their experiences here: http://katherinespeechies.wordpress.com/
