Therapy Abroad–Week 2 at the Inspiration Center

Days 9-11

Therapy Abroad kicked off week 2 in Belize at the Inspiration Center. Our last week of Communication Camp was even better than the first. The blossoming student SLPs took charge and found ways to improve the activities from week 1 in order to elicit more language from the Pirate Campers while managing behavior and having fun!

The students also had another opportunity to make home visits through the Inspiration Center’s Community Based Rehab program. They played with the kiddos and observed Therapy Abroad’s SLP, Mollie Mindel, in the field as she worked one-on-one with caregivers and Inga, social worker at the Inspiration Center.

Our last day at the Inspiration Center was a fun one…but also pretty emotional for some of our Pirate Campers when they realized camp was ending 😦

After a week and a half of hard and meaningful work in Belize, it’s time for some well-deserved island time! Next stop– Caye Caulker!
