The Speech Centre’s Hannah Pfaff to present at National Conference

Hannah Pfaff, who has recently joined The Speech Centre team in our Mallow and Mitchelstown clinics, will present her research on the validity of a new assessment tool, Captain Grey and the Greedy Aliens, at the Irish Association Speech and Language Therapy (IASLT) biennial conference at the end of May. This new assessment tool is currently in development, and aims to assess verb and sentence production in children with developmental language disorders. Hannah’s research focuses on analysing the language produced by children with developmental language disorders in response to this tool and comparing these results to wider research findings in the area. She will present alongside her research partner Jo O’Keefe. The theme of this year’s conference is “Celebrating our Profession: Reflecting, Learning, Advancing”. For full details of the IASLT biennial conference visit http://conference.iaslt.ie/
