She has made the partnership with Aliya Begum to support her to maintain her life as an independent person.

The language therapist is responsible to give her mental health support by increasing the confidence about communication(Barlow, et al., 2013). Since, Aliya Begum has difficulties to communicate with others. The care giver also uses the language in which the patient is familiar and like communicates. It helps the patient to express her needs to the care giver. The role of the language therapist becomes more important for the patient as is helps her to approach her problem to the care gives directly.

There are different strengths and weaknesses that may arise in the phenomenon related to partnershipworking in health and social care. As per the case study, it is vital to promote healthy communication with Alia Begum which can serve the health therapist team with the ability to satisfy the needs and requirements of Alia Begum. It is the prime responsibility of the health care team working for Alia to work in collaboration which can lead them to figure out the best effective care which must be provided to her in terms of mitigating her health related issue. As she is suffering from certain learning disability, her care planners must promote healthy collaboration and with her family members and must convince them to send her to special schools.
