About Gillian Adonis

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.

It is little wonder I was drawn into this field of work. I graduated from Stellenbosch University in 2002. After completing my degree I worked at Bloemfontein Hospital as part of my community service. Working there affirmed my calling into this field of helping people. It was probably one of my most humbling experiences, but imparted me with humility and an unreserved heart of compassion.

There after, I spent some time at a special needs school in Johannesburg. The school focused on children with Learning Difficulties primarily Dyslexia. These kids crept into my heart and I just knew I wanted to continue working with children, specifically, those who had reading difficulties.

Speech Therapist

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.

Speech Therapist

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.
