Personal profile

Research Interests

My current research is concerned with the nature of dysarthria resulting from stroke and the results of speech and language therapy interventions with the stroke dysarthria population. Projects and publications in this field relate to a ‘Living with Dysarthria’ group approach, and individual behavioural therapy, including a randomised trial involving non-speech oro-motor exercises.    

Personal Statement

I am an Emeritus Professor in Speech and Language Therapy. My specialist field is the communication disorders associated with adult neurological disorders, especially stroke; my research and publication encompasses aphasia, dysarthria and right hemisphere damage and also the communication skills of non-brain damaged adults. My current research is in dysarthria following stroke, with projects on its characterization and outcomes associated with speech and language therapy interventions. 

 

In 2009 I was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists for outstanding scholarship within the speech and language therapy profession. I have received Outstanding Teaching nominations from the student body each year since the start of the scheme in 2010.  I have many links with external bodies, including Health and Care Professions Council roles in course approval and monitoring and investigating and conduct and competence panels.
