My background is in languages and linguistics, with a focus on language disorders and acquisition. Following an MA in Clinical Linguistics, I have conducted research related to both acquired language disorders in adults and developmental language disorders in children. My PhD study is related children’s language development and ways to ensure appropriateness and acceptability of speech and language interventions for children and their families. The study will use a qualitative ethnographic approach to understand how variation in children’s everyday activities leads to different types of interaction. These findings will be used to consider how speech and language therapy approaches can incorporate contextual understandings of linguistic interaction, with a focus on cultural competence and family-centred practice.
