Floristry, perhaps?


Speech and language therapy is not all children with lisps or stutters. For some speech and language therapists it means working with people who have suffered major surgery, who have ongoing facial tumours, limited life expectancies. These peoples live's have changed beyond all recognition, and a young speech and language therapist feels she is their only chance of some semblance of normality, communication, relationships. But that struggle has been a long, hard and debilitating one. The seeds of change she hoped to sow when newly qualified have not germinated, let alone flourished and bloomed. Exhausted, she may have to look for blossoms elsewhere.
