I am a Speech and Language Therapist, Cognitive Neuropsychologist and
I work to combine research into language processing in healthy adults and those with acquired language and communication difficulties as a result of neurological damage. For example, individuals with aphasia following a stroke, or with speech and voice difficulties as a result of Parkinson's Disease.
On Friday March 14th I will be speaking at one-day course on 'Care of the Older Person' run by Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust and hosted at the University of Reading, London Road campus. I will be speaking about speech and swallowing problems in older adults.
