I was born and raised in the beautiful Western Cape. The people and children of Cape Town have always been my passion, ever since I can remember.
About Gillian Adonis
After teaching for 9 years I returned to university to follow my dream of becoming a speech and language therapist. I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2016 with a BScHon in Speech and Language Pathology. The following year I did my community service in Kuruman in the Northern Cape. It was my first choice, because I wanted to be placed in a rural area where there is extreme poverty and need.
At the end of 2017 I returned to where my heart is, Cape Town.
I have thus far accrued a year and a half of experience as a Speech Therapist and over 1190 hands on clinical hours.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2016 with a BSc in Speech-Language Pathology. I then completed my community service year at Eshowe District Hospital situated in rural KZN, where I worked predominantly with paediatric special needs populations and adult neurology patients. I gained invaluable experience in many areas of speech therapy within adult acute care settings as well as paediatric special populations. I enjoy working with a wide range of adult and paediatric speech, language, feeding and swallowing disorders. I have developed a keen interest in adult dysphagia management and speech and language intervention for early childhood. I am passionate about what I do as speech therapist and enjoy constantly learning and developing as a therapist.
I am very satisfied with the results my son has shown. We have been bringing Zachariah for a while and am amazed at the progress he has made. One never realises the importance of spoken language until you have a child that is unable to communicate with you.
