Hiello, my name is Tea and I survive by working as a speech therapist with years of practice in schools, kindergartens, health and social facilities. I often like to say that I am a person with a masochistic apathy towards chocolate ice cream and too much empathy for everything else. In my free time I try to find out why the big I is written without a dot, laugh, jump on puddles, trample crunchy leaves and read. I love people, sarcasm, comics, old school rock, intelligent conversations, less intelligent conversations, imagination, creativity, and overall weirdness. I don’t like routines, boredom, chocolate ice cream and hypocritical people. I’m trying to learn to play guitar outside of "Wheels on a bus" frame. I don’t keep my nose high because I’m afraid of heights.
Quite intentionally, in December 2017, I received a graduation cap from the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences in Zagreb for Christmas, and I found myself with a master’s degree in speech therapy and set out to change the world. As I had moved from system to system, I have realized that changing the world always comes with a set of markers and green Excel spreadsheets. And no one cares for the father of two children, both diagnosed with autism, sitting by the car and crying because his 6-year-old son does not want to enter the donated house because any change in space and routine creates mental and physical discomfort and fear. That is why I volunteered with these families and children conducting speech therapy therapies and workshops. After a while my living room became too small for so many children, my hedgehog decided to protest, so I opened a private practice.
The main goal is to provide families with faster diagnostics and support without fighting the perpetual bureaucracy and provide free therapy for children with no parental care and/or disadvantaged families. Finally, my goal is to make speech therapists globally accessible and to show people that they should not be afraid of technology. This is why I made a STEM workshops and am planning to use them as a pinpoint for making SLP app and pair it with VR and touch technology.
It is currently possible to participate by donating or investing in therapies for children, parents and professionals in any part of the world, by direct donation or by donating for STEM workshops in order to past the test stage of application. Also, I am open to any kind of international cooperation. If you cannot help monetary please share it for better reach.
I give a lot of gratitude, love, work, responsibility and hugs to everyone who had already helped. In return I promise a maximum of bad speech therapist humor, at least three lost pencils a day that I will almost never get back, colorful socks on my feet every day, patience and a smile on my face!
Thanks to everyone!
