Bio: 
After graduating from King Saud University with a major in Speech and Hearing Rehabilitation, I started my internship at National Guard hospital and have gained a great deal of experience in dysphagia and normal swallowing function. After the internship and have gained experience in clinical management of both children and adults with communication disorders as I have worked in multiple private clinics and centers assessing and treatment multiple communication disorders such as stuttering, voice disorders, articulation, phonological disorders and language disorders. Then I headed back to King Saud University as a teaching assistant and now a lecturer with a double Master’s level training. I have also gained knowledge and experience in the research of phonetic and phonological development. I am also specialized in assessment and management of communication disorders related to cleft lip and/or palate.
