|Suzanne is our Speech and Language Therapist. A graduate of Trinity College Dublin, Suzanne has worked in a range of different clinical and educational settings with children from birth to eighteen years of age. Suzanne continues to engage in research within her clinical practice. Her current clinical areas of interest include parent-child interaction, interdisciplinary working and strengths-based report writing
Suzanne was keen to develop this app as she feels that Speech and Language Therapists have been slow to make use of technology in their work. She felt frustrated that the apps commercially available in this area were limited in their use and that skills taught through an app were difficult to generalise to everyday life. She sees Talk2MeMore as a way of empowering parents to develop their children’s speech and language skills in natural environments.
