Samuel Boey, speech and language pathologist

Volunteering led Samuel Boey to change careers, blending his passions for linguistics and for people with intellectual disabilities into becoming a speech and language pathologist.

As a member of Therapy Pro’s team, ‘Sam the Speechie’ has a reputation for working magic with clients of all ages who have complex behavioural or communication needs.

A great believer in mealtimes being social occasions, Samuel can assess risks of swallowing difficulties such as aspiration and choking, and provide strategies and equipment advice for safer, enjoyable mealtimes.

He understands that frustration can sometimes fuel challenging behaviours such as biting or hitting, and he has a few tricks up his sleeve to improve communication.

For clients with difficulty expressing themselves verbally or who are non-verbal, Samuel has proven to be a whiz in finding and implementing appropriate augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) for clients.

Samuel values the social importance of communication, and helps clients build positive interactions within their family and community.

Having studied linguistics at the National University of Singapore, Samuel gained his Masters of Speech Pathology Studies from the University of Queensland.

He is fluent in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Key Word Signing (signs from Auslan) and various forms of AAC (including PODD and core vocabulary systems).

Away from work, Samuel may be found at Starlight Foundation events and children’s parties performing magic and circus arts. He is a volunteer with CPL Screech Theatre.

Lina Kohler Holma, speech and language pathologist

Lina Kohler Holma, speech and language pathologist

For Therapy Pro speech and language pathologist Lina Kohler Holma, making a big difference in the lives of her Ipswich clients can be a subtle nod of a head.

Swedish-born Lina has travelled extensively around Australia, studied in Adelaide, now calls Brisbane home and Ipswich her workplace.

With a passion for improving the quality of life for people with a disability, Lina believes that communication is key and even a small change can make a huge difference.

Through her work, Lina hopes to find new ways for those with disabilities to find their voice by using alternative ways to communicate and with the right support from their communication partners.

“It feels amazing to know that I can make a difference in someone’s life by giving them the mechanisms to say what they want or don’t want and that a simple movement can enable this achievement.”

Lina previously worked with clients with neuro-developmental and learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, mobility impairments and acquired brain injuries.

She can assist clients with communication, mealtimes swallowing, dysphasia and development assessments and interventions.

Having the ability to make your own choice isn’t just about being heard. It builds self-esteem and confidence too. Lina is someone keen to listen, understand and support that.

Danielle Forrest, social worker

Danielle Forrest, clinical social worker

Positivity is contagious: It’s with that belief that Therapy Pro social worker Danielle Forrest approaches her job, passing the mindset on to clients.

With TAFE courses and a university degree, plus work with Disability Services, behind her, Danielle assists families and carers to develop and implement clients’ Positive Behaviour Support Plans – strategies that improve the life of a person with a disability and reduce the impact of challenging behaviour.

Danielle’s local knowledge of Ipswich, gained through her work with Disability Services, is proving invaluable. She already knows some of her clients, or has knowledge of them, and has previously worked with many established carers.

“I am passionate about people. I want to put the right protocols and supports in place. I will bring a fresh pair of eyes and an upbeat attitude to every visit to every client.”

While Danielle doesn’t claim to have a magic wand, she believes that through team work, client-centred practice and Therapy Pro’s 360 approach, the lives of clients can be improved.
