Speech and language therapy, to me, means helping children and young people understand the world; supporting and enabling them to take part in and enjoy everyday activities so one day they can feel safe and happy in their community. Being able to communicate basic needs; choices and feelings can make a huge positive difference to their quality of life and it brings me such joy to know I can support this happening.
My favourite word is ‘illuminate’, meaning: to create light and brightness.
