Biography

The thrust of my contribution to the field of clinical and educational neuro-psychology has been in providing a service to people of all ages who have had to adjust to neurological changes.

I have aimed at exploring the strategies employed in different educational systems from both the developing and developed world in order to facilitate the re-integration into society.

The emphasis has been on working with teachers, family members, carers and community carers using local resources and ‘whatever it takes’.

For this purpose I initiated the establishment of a local rural rehabilitation service in the farming area of South Africa. The Not-for-Profit organisation offers a modest rehabilitation service in the form of a 10 bed residential unit for short term intervention together with workshops for day programming.
