The Speech Group Testimonials & Case Studies
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.
This client had difficulties with communication and articulation. He contacted this clinic for support with social communication and presentation skills as these were affecting his ability to gain employment. Speech and Language Therapy assisted him to understand the basis of these problems e.g. breathing, rate control, intonation and prosody. Using strategies and biofeedback this client was able to achieve a better understanding of what he can do to make things better. He has done very well and this is a credit to him!
