Do you have some ideas for a research project on this topic?
As a potential PhD research project Katherine Buckeridge (Speech and Language Therapist at Chailey Clinical Services) is looking at developing a tool or checklist which evaluates how children who are unable to use speech participate in communication. She would like to use parent views to develop the tool. At the moment there are no commonly used tools which can be used use to record how children who are nonverbal as a result of neurodisability participate in communication.
Some questions she would like to explore in the session include:
At a later stage there may be potential for parents to be involved in the project itself as a participant or as part of the research team if it receives funding from the National Institute of Health Research.
