After 26 years of helping children with speaking difficulties in Europe and Africa, speech pathologist Olwen Morgen has decided to settle in Broken Hill.

Following a brief stint in the hospital's speech pathology unit two years ago, Ms Morgen is setting up a permanent practice at the Morgan Street Allied Health Service.

The Zimbabwe-raised pathologist specialises in paediatrics for infants up to 18 months old. She also works with children suffering from autistic spectrum disorder and a range of learning difficulties.
