The speech therapy room has been “metamorphosised”. We now have a tranquil “Tuscan style” setting leading into an outdoor therapy area as well. Taking advantage of the blissful summer days, needless to say that most of the kids have been having an outdoor summer speech therapy blast!
We bid farewell to the restaurant next door which is currently being transformed into the Southern Suburbs Medical Centre. A sneak preview highlights a mini coffee shop!!! Mums and dads, you will soon be able to grab a cuppa whilst waiting for your little ones during Speech therapy.

ACTIVITIES FOR 2013
- The Speech Therapist & Audiologist conducted an information sharing session on the Importance of Identifying a Hearing Loss. The talk was hosted on the 23 January 2013 at the Crown Gardens Recreation Centre and was well received by a cross-cultural group of senior citizens. This invitation was extended to The Speech Therapist & Audiologist by the Southern Suburbs Muslim Women’s Forum.
- 3rd March is International Ear Care Day. This year, the theme of the day is Healthy Hearing, Happy Life – Hearing Health Care for Ageing People.The Speech Therapist & Audiologist will be hosting a campaign to raise awareness regarding ear and hearing care, hearing loss and use of hearing aids. The programme will be finalised closer to the date, however a tentative mid-morning presentation will be followed by a hearing screening camp (50+ years old only) for the detection of hearing loss.
- Early detection and intervention remains the topic at heart! The Speech Therapist & Audiologist plans to conduct school screening camps in order to identify speech-language and hearing disorders amongst Grade Rs and Grade 1s. Furthermore, informational flyers will be disseminated amongst the parents / caregivers of these children. Do contact me should you like me to propose the screening campaign at your little ones school.The 2013 early intervention screening campaign will kick off at the Smiley Kids Naturena Pre-Primary School on 12 February 2013. Thank you to Smiley Kids Naturena Pre-Primary School for providing me an opportunity to be a part of “the difference”.
