Suzanne is an Australian trained Speech-Language Pathologist with dual Fijian- Australian citizenship. She will be meeting with communication specialists in Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and Vanuatu on a project to bring together speakers of Pacific Island indigenous languages to ultimately create a functional Word-list for these islands. Such a list will assist South Pacific Area Specialists with the early diagnosis and treatment of communication disabilities.
