I became a Speech and Language Therapist in 1996, working with both adults and children. After a brief spell working in New Zealand, I returned to a Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist post Edinburgh. I worked with children with complex communication disorders in the areas of diagnosis and intervention, in both clinical and education settings. In 2005, I joined QMU as a research clinician working on projects in the area of communication between Allied Health Professional and and Education. In 2007 I became a lecturer in Speech and Hearing Sciences. My teaching interests are mainly in the area of social communication disorders and general principles of Speech and Language Therapy practice. I continue to be a practicing clinician in the NHS specializing in the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders and related social communication disorders.
