I have completed a BSc in Psychology (achieving 1:1) at York St John University and a MSc in Development, Disorders and Clinical Practice (achieving distinction) at York University.
In addition to my education, I have over 3 years research experience working in language development and disorders. I am currently working as a research associate for projects headed by Dr Cristina McKean, Dr Helen Stringer and Professor James Law at Newcastle University, which are:
– COST IS1406: ‘Enhancing children’s oral language skills across Europe and beyond – a collaboration focusing on interventions for children with difficulties learning their first language’ http://research.ncl.ac.uk/costis1406/
– Improving school readiness of children at risk of speech and language difficulties in areas of low SES
– Enhancing communication environments in primary school classrooms in the North East
