I know a lot of therapists and hospitals. For 3 years I have not been able to speak. I now can speak. Liz is the best speech therapist in the whole world.”
This 30 year old client suffered a traumatic brain injury 3 years ago. He has been seen in this clinic now for 1 year. Using a psycholinguistic processing approach, drill based language exercises and a dedicated Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, this client is now speaking in sentences and is starting to spell and read text. His improvement is due to dedication and adherence to therapy tasks. It is hoped that in due course, employment opportunities will emerge as part of rebuilding identity through project based rehabilitation. (Liz Williamson)
