Hi, I’m Chloe.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2020 with a BSC in Speech-Language Pathology (Hons). I completed my year of community service in Benedictine Hospital Nongoma, Zululand a rural part of South Africa. There I ran the speech therapy department for three local hospitals. The hospitals had a wide range of cases from premature infants to 90-year-old grandparents. During this year, I discovered my love for children with communication disorders and more complex needs.
In my current role, I work in both mainstream primary schools as well as in a specialist Autism setting. These distinct environments allow me to continuously learn from and evolve into a better speech and language therapist. More recently, I’ve been fortunate enough to be entrusted with the role of a mentor at Words First. This promotion will allow me to work with new therapists helping them integrate into the company.
I love working for Words First as it is a passion-driven company that strives for the best in all. The training and one-on-one peer supervision creates a supportive and welcoming environment that I am so lucky to be a part of.
