Meet the Team!

We are a team of dedicated speech therapist volunteers who are passionate about making Singapore a better place for persons with aphasia and their caregivers!

 

Bound by a common vision, our team work across different clinical settings around the island ranging from acute hospitals, community hospital, private hospital, day rehab centre to private home-based care.

 

In our free time, we love to chit chat.
