I am a physiotherapist and faculty member at Taibah University (TU), Saudi Arabia. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy from TU. Then, I have been awarded a job position as a teaching and research assistant at the Physiotherapy Department, College of Medical Rehabilitation Sciences and a scholarship to complete my postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom.
I have found my passion in working with children with special needs. I have always wanted to see the world from their perspective and understand the obstacles that hinder their ability to communicate their needs. Therefore, I have decided to complete my postgraduate journey in this rewardable field.
I obtained a master degree in Neurorehabilitation from the University of Nottingham. Following that, I was looking for a highly-reputed university to do my PhD and found that the Children's Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) at the University of Exeter is certainly among the best in the World and is the right place to do my PhD degree.
My PhD research will focus on the use of virtual reality training on upper limb function of cerebral palsy children.
