Breaking the Silence:
Developing communication strategies for children in China who cannot talk - A project funded by the Australia-China Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 2008-2009

Background 2007

Rosemary Crossley

In October 2007 I was invited to give a keynote address on Non-speech Communication at the inaugral international conference on Rehabilitation of Children with Cerebral Palsy held at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  My host was Professor Kexing Sun.  After the conference I was asked to visit clinics for children with cerebral palsy held at two teaching hospitals.  It is my experiences during these hospital visits, described below, that led to an extended project funded by the Australia-China Foundation.
