Thank You Thackeray RAM
We are still very busy in Speech Therapy, as usual, but it's lovely working with the children at this time of year, because they are so excited about Christmas! I have brilliant news--- the resource we ordered with the money Thackeray Lodge members donated, has arrived !! I chose to buy a special assessment to use with children aged 7years and above, who stammer. It's a self-assessment- so children answer a set of questions relating to their experience of stammering, so that we can see the overall impact the condition has on their daily lives. I haven't used it yet, but I consider it will help me decide on the most helpful treatments to use for each individual and also help to monitor a child's progress and evaluate the impact of the treatment.
Once again, I'd like to thank you all for your kind donation, which will make a great difference to our work and to the children we see. Have a very happy Christmas and a healthy and happy new year,
Pat Cuthbert - Weston Area NHS Trust
