It is with great sadness that APSL announce the death of one of our former Vice Presidents and Executive Committee Member, Mrs. Shiranee Joseph De Saram, on 16 December 2020.
She was a Specialist Speech Language Pathologist with over 40 years of experience in Sri Lanka and in the UK. She served as a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust from 2003-2015.
In her time with APSL Shiranee was involved in the ‘Living in the UK’ Seminar Series and delivered many excellent presentations. She also contributed to many other APSL charitable activities as an active member.
She was the founder Director of Rehabilitation Centre for the Communication Impaired (RCCI) and dedicated her services to address the need for a dedicated centre for treating over one million people with communication impairments in Sri Lanka.
Shiranee is remembered as a generous and incredibly kind lady who dedicated her life to help communication impaired people.
May she attain Supreme Bliss of Nibbana!
