Tamlyn Laubscher, Bachelor of Science in Speech -Language Pathology (Hons)
Hello, my name is Tamlyn, I studied at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa and graduated in 2014. While studying I worked as an English tutor, for children with special learning needs, as well as a market research group hostess which allowed me to practice patience, become resourceful, and improve my communication skills. As a speech and language therapist I have worked in a variety of settings including a primary healthcare clinic, a hospital in Khayelitsha (Cape Town), private, primary and nursery schools as well as part of a team at a non-profit organisation providing professional services to disadvantaged communities. I feel all my experience thus far has prepared me to work well independently as well as in a multi-disciplinary team. I have a special interest in social communication and children with literacy difficulties. I am a Level 5a SaLT at WF, working full-time at both secondary and primary schools in South- West London. I strive to achieve a philosophy of holistic child-centred intervention by working closely with parents and other professionals. I believe that empowering caregivers and teachers with the appropriate skills can strongly benefit a treatment plan. I love that WF gave me the opportunity to fulfil a dream of working and living abroad. I love the support structure within WF at all levels, the opportunity to learn within new environments and cultures and the company’s approach to intervention. I love exploring new places, new cuisines, and cultures. In my spare time you would find me cooking up a storm in the kitchen or looking for a new restaurant to try out. I love to entertain and make my friends and family feel loved and special with my food. If you had to call my best friend and ask him/her to describe me, I think they’d describe me as kind, talkative and organised.
