Congratulations to Professor Alta Kritzinger for being awarded runner-up lecturer of the year in 2018 from the Faculty of Humanities! This award comes shy of Prof Kritzinger’s retirement in December 2018 after 33 years of service to the University of Pretoria. She, in collaboration with other colleagues, started the Clinic for High Risk Babies (CHRIB) in 1990. Over 850 children have subsequently received support from the clinic over the last 28 years.
Prof Kritizinger will be missed by the entire Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. She has been a mentor to an infinite number of students over the years. Although we are excited for this new chapter in her life and it that it may bring, including more time with her two grandchildren.
Thank you for all that you have taught us and given to Early Communication Intervention!
