I run Olivia Thomet & Associates Private Practice in full capacity and currently have five full-time speech therapists employed in Johannesburg. The core of the practice is multi/trans-disciplinary work with all team member involved and we pride ourselves of “thinking out the box” and utilizing skills acquired from our vital team members. We have collaborated with many allied health professionals across our schools and therapy institutions/centers such as Foundations for Life. Case-conferencing is of utmost importance to us.
