The client asked SLT to help restore her depressed son’s confidence after he had threatened to leave university.
We introduced tutors and an academic mentor to help the student reassess his approach to life and university. Over many months, the team helped the student to accept his language processing disorder and to learn new strategies to read and write effectively. His results improved and his anxiety slowly receded. The boy’s relationship with his mentor developed over the course of several years, as he developed the confidence to apply for first internships, and then jobs.
