Comunidad Crecer, meaning "community for growth," is a small private school outside Mexico City dedicated to supporting children and adults with multiple disabilities. Since 1990, students, supervisors, and faculty members from the UNM Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences have traveled to Comunidad Crecer to collaborate as part of a multidisciplinary team providing services to clients and their families. In recent years, the program has expanded to include virtual exchanges to enhance cross-cultural growth, collective knowledge, and improve clinical Spanish use among our graduate student clinicians.
Applications are accepted annually. For more information on the project, please contact progam directors: Andrea Martinez-Fisher, Renee Garcia, Lauril Sachet
