Happy Kids Clinic is a social enterprise of the NGO, OIC Cambodia. HKC was established as a means of showing people in Cambodia what speech therapy looks like and provides opportunities to gather useful information for the development of a university course. We employ a combination of foreign therapists and Khmer therapy assistants and work with both foreign and Cambodian families, creating a complex cultural and linguistic environment.
The purpose of this position is to deliver high quality therapy services to enable children with additional needs to engage in activities of daily living at home, school and in the community. Additionally, the role requires a willingness to support the continued learning and practice of therapy assistants regarding clinical best practice as vital and valued members of a sustainable therapy team, working cross culturally in Cambodia. The role requires an openness to constantly learn and adapt approaches and practice in tandem with the therapy assistant to ensure that each family receives clear and comprehensive therapy support. The position may require resource development to support therapy goals and continued advocacy for the benefits of therapy services for children with additional needs and their families. The clinic is one piece of a larger speech therapy puzzle, where there are NGOs engaged in developing the profession in Cambodia, as well other private practices starting up to address the significant need in country. Employees may have opportunities to do some work with other organisations, depending on their skills and experience.
