New Externship Study Abroad Program

The Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences Department through Lehman College has an affiliation with the Universidade de Sao Paulo and the Hospital das Clinicas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The program in Sao Paulo provided housing for the students and they were given the opportunity to see many interesting cases of facial palsy, cleft, head and neck cancer, dysphagia across the lifespan (bedside and clinic), and facial and dental abnormalities. The opportunity to collaborate and work with the speech and language pathology students at the university was invaluable.

Letters and Literacy: Story Time for 'Lil Ones Program
Undergraduate and graduate student volunteers supported groups of children 0-5years of age in Story Time activities during six weeks this summer at the Speech and Hearing Center. During the program, designed to foster emergent literacy skills, student clinicians assessed children’s familiarity with reading and books, counseled parents, and used best practices in emergent literacy to engage children and their parents in story time activities. The program offers a model for caregivers and parents in the Bronx community to foster a love of reading in their children.
