B Speech-Language and Hearing Therapy

Hi, my name is Dharshini and I am a South African Speech and Language Therapist. I studied at the University of Stellenbosch and graduated in 2018. During my university degree, I had the opportunity of training in many different settings such as mainstream schools, special schools, rehabilitation clinics, and hospitals. Thereafter, I worked as a Speech and Language Therapist at a district-level hospital that serviced inpatients, outpatients and surrounding rural clinics. Since moving to the UK in December 2020, I have worked in mainstream schools in London. My special areas of interest in speech and language therapy are hearing impairment and dysphagia. Working at Words First has allowed me the opportunity to meet and learn from amazing therapists. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching movies, exploring different foods and learning about different cultural backgrounds. My friends describe me as “kind, positive and happy”.
