Damian and Maximo joined the team of international speech-language pathology experts who facilitated sessions for students of UST, Thomas More University, and The Education University of Hong Kong.
Damian was one of the experts in the panel that focused on the question: “How, as a speech-language therapist, do you examine an adult after an acquired brain injury?” She was joined in by Dorien Vandenborre, Ineke Wilssens, Catherine Cornette, Melissa Konings, Katrien De Brouwer (Thomas More University) and Lorinda Kwan (The Education University of Hong Kong.” The panel focused on adults with acquired cognitive-linguistic disorders.
Meanwhile, Maximo joined the panel on “The power of reading aloud. Let’s use it build vocabulary.” Joining Maximo were Els Geypen and An Lowette (Thomas More University), and Carmen Ooi (The Education University of Hong Kong).
A total of 52 third-year BS Speech-Language Pathology students from the University of Santo Tomas joined this internationalization activity.
