Jenny brings to the project her research and clinical expertise in autism and developmental language disorders. As a qualified Speech and Language Therapist, working in a London Borough where over 70% of referrals involve children from bilingual/multilingual families, she has direct experience of the issues faced by speakers of community/minoritised languages who also have communication disabilities. Jenny is a steering group member of the East Anglian Regional Hub of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists which provides a valuable link for recruitment and dissemination activities. She is also an early career researcher specialising in the cognitive and social aspects of developmental disorders of language and social communication, and has received ESRC and MRC funding to investigate how pragmatic language difficulties impact on children’s relationships within their social worlds.
