Student Success Story - Peter Coghlan

After suffering a stroke former student, Peter Coghlan, has become the first man in history (at least in Australia) to have broken out of Locked-in Syndrome and bounced back into health care as an Assistant Therapist!

He recently completed his Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance North Metropolitan TAFE and was quick to thank all the support mechanisms he had in place during his studies, giving special mention to the support team of Bob Martin and Samantha Bickell in the Joondalup Library.

You can read more of his inspirational story on his blog site:
