The Centre for Inclusive Education welcomes Churchill Fellow Anna Sowerbutts, who is visiting Australia during March and April 2023. Anna will provide a public lecture titled: Developmental Language Disorder: Advocacy and Collaboration
Anna is a speech and language therapist working in Hackney, London, and a lecturer at University College London, who specialises in Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), a common but under-recognised developmental disorder. Through her Churchill Fellowship, Anna is visiting multiple sites in Australia to investigate innovative ways in which education and health services can collaborate to raise awareness and support children with DLD.
Other presentations will showcase the research and practice that is being undertaken in Queensland, Australia to support children and your people with communication difficulties:
