I am a teacher in the "Right to Life" Institution in Sana'a city. The institution serves children suffering from brain atrophy, which causes several troubles, including speech disorders. I did not initially have the skills to assess speech disorders and ways of treatment. I was unable to help the children [who suffered from speech disorders] in my role at the institution. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to participate in an SFD training course in speech therapy. This session gave me the necessary skills in this area, and enhanced my abilities in my field. I became confident and capable of dealing with children who have problems in speech, like the case of the child Ameen, who joined the Foundation and was suffering from several problems, including pronunciation difficulties. His mother thought he was dumb, unable to express his day-to-day needs. This made Ameen introverted and isolated, and this negatively impacted the psyche of his family, especially his mother. When I checked on him I was able to diagnose his condition as a state of speech disorder and not dumbness. Ameen underwent a program of speech therapy, learning how to express himself and interact socially through communication with others. This matter has created pleasure in the heart of his mother.
