Key Research Interests

Susan’s research is mainly focused on increasing and developing the participation of children and adults with intellectual disabilities (and communication disabilities) in everyday life. Currently she is investigating the usefulness of 'easy read' health material adapted for people with learning disabilities. Her teaching is informed by this research focus, combined with wide ranging clinical knowledge and skills developed through working as a Speech and Language Therapist in both paediatric and adult posts in Scotland, and with international development organisations in Latin America. She continues to pursue her interests and links with Latin America, particularly through examining the life experiences of people with communication disabilities and how local and global processes and politics influence their participation in society.
