This project aims to create a stuttering health program for the Malaysian population. Outcomes from this health program will consist of a series of bilingual tools, surveys, management protocols, and guides for parents and speech-language therapists in managing stuttering.
Reasons for applying for fellowship:
Australia is well-known for stuttering treatment, especially children intervention program. Through this fellowship, Australia experts could help in shaping and driving the stuttering treatment and research agenda in Malaysia. The health program that we develop through this fellowship will contribute to improving health care, awareness, and development of treatment protocol for stuttering in Malaysia. This fellowship provides me an opportunity to enhance women’s role in science, attain new techniques, strengthen my network and collaborations between Australia and Malaysia.
