In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Smile Train Philippines will be holding their Speech Camp 2020, a series of virtual speech therapy classes for cleft patients during this enhanced community quarantine period (ECQ).
The world’s leading cleft organization will hold live sessions with its local experts through Facebook, which will run from April 1 to April 8, 2020.
Interested individuals may refer to the schedule below and follow the Smile Train Speech Camp page for updates:
Virtual Speech Therapy: April 1, 2:00-3:00PM
● By Speech Language Pathologist Veronica Yu from the University of Sto. Tomas

“Speech Camp 2020 is an initiative to enable our patients to continue their learning and speech sessions throughout the ECQ.
