I have 20 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist. I became a therapist as I thought it is a career which will satisfy my personal believes. And I really found it suitable for my personality, as I have a personal trends and skills which really gets a long with being a therapist like being happy to help others and the ambition to do something positive as a human being. One of my most challenging cases was a boy who suffered of reading difficulty who was not progressing at all with all ways I tried. The only thing which made the spark of having him progressing was a rewarding system which has been agreed between me and his mother.
My interest area is mostly in helping children who show some learning difficulties with all kind of problems related to Reading, Writing or even Behavioral issues.
It’s been 15 years since I started my career and I feel I made the right choice to be an Occupational Therapist.
Talking about one of my students, Ali who was 7 years old child with ASD since he was 3 years. It was a call from a friend asking for a help regarding Ali as I'm a SIPT certified, a home visit was planned, parents were interviewed and the child was evaluated. My friend followed the application of the plan and sensory diet given. Few months later, a call from the father reporting the huge changes starting from sleeping full night, eating different types of food, wearing warm clothes in winter, and sitting still during the mealtime, and I quote from the father's words :" we are family for the first time since Ali's birth, he is my shopping and long driving pal "
Mustafa Al Qaisi
In my 9 years of experience as a Speech Therapist, I have closely worked with children and they were always drawn to me, both in course practicums and in the family, so I made a choice to focus my work on peadiatric speech and language disorders. My interests are early intervention (including stuttering in preschoolers), language delays and disorders, articulation and phonological disorders.
One of the challenging clients I have had was a young boy with delayed language development. He would show up to school carried by his father, crying, and didn’t want to join any activity. I started by just sitting next to him and showing him that I am not expecting anything from him. His tantrums started to happen less frequently. He slowly started accepting others to join us and was using phrases to communicate. By the end of the year he joined every single activity in the classroom and was using sentences to express his wants and needs.
As a 13 years experienced Speech and Language therapist, I am interested in all expertise except those of voice therapy and dysphasia, unless all the instruments needed for assessment and rehabilitation are provided.
My passion for the role is due to the fact that it combines professional service and charity at the same time. I am happy about Live Line as I find Live Line to be an optimum and efficient way of using technology to help people who need this help and can not get it in the right and/or fast way.
Adapting technology nowadays is as important as so many basic needs to be met. Technology now is at the core of our lives and we can see it everywhere. The live line could be a very optimum and efficient way of using technology to help people who need this help and can not get it in the right and/or fast way.
