Bio

Nikki Heyman qualified as a speech therapist and audiologist from Wits University. She initially worked in a hospital setting as a speech therapist and audiologist but soon realized that her passion was working with children. She has worked in a number of different special education schools and completed a post graduate diploma in Remedial Education (cum laude) through RAU (now called University of Johannesburg). Through her blog, and social media she connected with therapists all over the world Although there were many SLPs using apps, the literature on using apps, particularly with children who do not have complex communication needs was sparse. Nikki’s research on the use of apps in clinical practice was awarded cum laude. She has an interest in Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) and autism and is familiar with a number of AAC apps . She is the only certified Touch-Chat Trainer in Africa. Nikki forms part of a multidisciplinary team that administers the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa.
