Speech and Language Therapy

kids-in-circle-lying-downSpeech and language therapy is not about elocution

People often ask me if I am going to make them talk better when I tell them what I do for a living. Most people do not realise that Speech and Language Therapists work with all types of communication disorders and disorders of swallowing and feeding. We work in many places including schools, hospitals, prisons, clinics, mental health centres, old-age homes and in research institutes.  We work with premature babies and the dying and elderly.  We work with loss, disability and death and try to help people achieve their potential in their ability to communicate with everyone in order to live meaningful, fulfilling lives.  It is a privilege to do this work and can be very challenging.
