I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist from Newcastle University in 2010, initially working in Sheffield for the Neurological Enablement Service and Community Stroke Service. Since 2015 I have been working as a Clinician at the Barnsley Assistive Technology Team, specialising in augmentative and alternative communication and environmental controls.
Barnsley Assistive Technology offers a specialised service across Yorkshire and Humber, working with local professionals to provide Assistive Technology to adult and paediatric clients with severe disabilities. In addition the team collaborates and leads on a number of research projects related to electronic assistive technology, so I am currently also a part-time Research Associate on the I-ASC project.
