Child Life Therapist Kongmeng Sialee has received a scholarship to spend September studying at the International School of Macau.
As a participant in the school’s Lao Outreach Program, he will learn how to interact more effectively with patients who have autism, development delay and speech problems. He will also have the opportunity to observe the school’s counselling, speech therapy and occupational therapy departments.
The International School of Macau started the outreach program in 2013 to allow teachers at the school to mentor educators from Lao PDR. The school formed a partnership with GLOBE, a Canadian nonprofit, and My Library in Luang Prabang to facilitate the program.
We are excited that Kongmeng has this chance to learn new skills, network with professionals from other countries and be an ambassador for LFHC.
The International School of Macau was established in 2002 to provide a Canadian curriculum and accreditation to local and expatriate students. English is the primary language of instruction. Today, it has an enrollment of 1,150 students representing 40 different countries.
