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 pediatric 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.
