My clinical specialisms are communication and swallowing disorders associated with learning disabilities, mental health and stammering. My current teaching role broadly includes professional knowledge and skills (year 2), lifelong disabilities, mental illness, disorders of fluency & developmental eating and drinking disorders. I am professional tutor for Year 2 of the SLT programme supporting students on placement. Additionally, I support placement access for students with disabilities across all year groups.
