Human Communication Studies

This Group carries out research in the area of human communication. Their work includes investigating aspects of normal development as well as exploring areas of specific speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) across the lifespan.

The work around SLCN encompasses the education of professionals as well as the investigation of issues of service delivery. The group brings together staff with expertise in the areas of speech and language therapy, linguistics and psychology.

Members of the group also have international links with colleagues in the Department of Audiology and Speech Sciences, University Kebangsaan Malaysia and the Australian Health Workforce Institute (AHWI), The University of Melbourne.
