New therapy centre

2011-02-01 00:00

SOUTHCITY Christian College in Margate has completed construction of its new education therapy centre, and sessions in the new venue could begin as soon as this week.

A spokesperson for the school confirmed that “the final touches such as carpeting are being taken care of”.

The centre will comprise a remedial hub that will include the services of a dedicated occupational therapist, counsellors and a speech and language analyst.

Said remedial therapist Cathy Mather-Pike,“I feel very privileged to be able to do something that I am passionate about — supporting children to be more successful in the classroom.”.

Shelly Dewsnap, another therapist, will be focusing her treatment in the centre on children with speech and language disorders.

“Therapy in this area ranges from lisps and stutters to more complex articulation difficulties, while language refers to how words are understood or put together to communicate ideas,” explained Dewsnap.

Students from anywhere on the South Coast — not only those attending Southcity — will be invited to make use of the new facilities.

For more information, call the college at 039 314 9524.
