"The Nicaragua Project.  In 2013, Clinical Professor Ann Fennell and a group of students from UI and UNI delivered speech-language pathology services to children with disabilities at a school in Managua, Tesoros de Dios or “God’s Treasures.”  In Nicaragua -- where speech-language pathology is not yet a recognized profession -- caregivers and staff at the school have limited experience providing specialized services in communication, hearing, feeding and swallowing.  In addition to providing care and education, the group strives to foster self-sufficiency in providing this care.  In turn, participants develop a deeper understanding of the challenges of working with children with disabilities and their families living in extreme poverty with limited resources. Professor Fennell will lead a new team of graduate students in 2014."
