Speech & Language Therapist
L.R.C.S.L.T / M.R.C.S.L.T

Member of the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapist, Registered Speech & Language Therapist in UK, Licensed Professional - M.O.H

I qualified from UK in 1980 and have worked in a variety of schools, hospitals, clinical and local settings. I have been working in Dubai with children and families for many years.

As a Speech and Language Therapist, I provide many specialized paediatric services these include —
  • Mild, moderate or severe learning difficulties
  • Physical disabilities
  • Language delay
  • Specific language impairments
  • Articulation or phonological difficulties
  • Hearing impairment
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Stammering and dysfluency
  • Autistic spectrum / social interaction difficulties
  • Dyslexia

The clinical methods used will vary depending on the nature and severity of the problem, the age of the client and the individual’s awareness of their problem. Play based therapy using appropriate toys and games are incredibly valuable tools for developing and promoting language development. A balance of play therapy and structured activities creates a fun and positive learning environment.

Typical work activities include:
  • Identifying children's developmental speech and communication difficulties/disorders;
  • Devising, implementing and revising relevant treatment programmes.
  • Advising parents and teachers on implementing treatment programmes, and training other professionals in therapy delivery.
  • Assessing communication environments.
  • Monitoring and evaluating clients' progress.
  • Working with clients on a one-to-one basis and in small groups, to deliver therapy.
  • Writing and maintaining confidential client case notes and reports, as well as information for clients, parents, teachers and other professionals.
  • Managing a caseload taking account of priority cases, waiting lists, successful outcomes, referral and discharge of service users.
  • Working with others to improve the effectiveness of service delivery.
