Make a difference as a Speech-Language Therapist
Many of us do not think twice about how easy it is for us to communicate with each other. But for children, youths and the elderly who have various speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders, expressing their needs and emotions is a constant challenge. And that is where your expertise as Speech-Language Therapist makes a world of difference.
Speech-related disabilities or speech impairments such as delayed development, autism, hearing loss, intellectual disabilities or brain damage either develop at birth or later in life. As a speech-language therapist, you will work on a one-on-one basis or in groups to assess your client’s specific difficulties. You will then craft specialised and effective therapy programmes to enable them to cope with or, in certain cases, overcome their difficulties.
As a trained speech-language therapist, you will be much sought after by establishments such as early intervention centres, special education schools, rehabilitation centres, therapy hubs and residential programmes for people with disabilities.
