I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology degree at the University of Cape Town in 2017 and then I moved to Bloemfontein to complete my community service year at Pelonomi Tertiary Hospital. I absolutely loved my experience there and learned so much from working in a multi-disciplinary team. I am currently working at Nokuthula Special Needs School in Lyndhurst where I am the speech therapist in the ECD phase. I have a passion for working with children and helping them reach their full potential. I have a never give up attitude and I believe in using evidence-based practice to achieve my therapy goals.
Key areas of interest:
– Autism Spectrum Disorder
– Early Childhood Intervention
– Paediatric and Adult Dysphagia/Feeding difficulties
– Phonological and Language Disorders
– Literacy difficulties
-Equine assisted therapy
– Acquired Neurological Disorders
I believe in using a caring,holistic and evidence-based approach to therapy. I work closely with the client, their significant others (parents, caregivers, spouses etc.) as well as with other professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Educational Psychologists to achieve the best possible outcome. I have a passion for working with children and I believe that early intervention is the key to unlocking their full potential.
