About

Human Communication Sciences at the University of Sheffield is training the next generation of Speech and Language Therapists, supporting practitioners in their professional development and conducting innovative research.

Overview

About the programme

Human Communication Sciences researchers at the University of Sheffield draw on theory, research methodology and practice from a range of perspectives: linguistic, psycholinguistic medical, psychosocial and educational.

Populations which have been a particular focus for investigation are children with:

  • Normally developing speech, language and literacy
  • Delayed, specific, persisting speech difficulties (e.g. phonological delay, apraxia of speech, and stammering)
  • Developmental language disorder (DLD)
  • Literacy problems (e.g. dyslexia; hyperlexia)
  • Medical conditions or syndromes (e.g. cleft lip and palate, Down syndrome)
  • Auditory processing problems
  • Disadvantaged backgrounds

In addition, adopting a developmental perspective enables the exploration of the unfolding nature of speech and language difficulties across the lifespan and what impact these have on educational achievement; social relationships and employment. Thus, projects with older children/adolescents and adults with developmental speech and language difficulties are included in this group's portfolio.

Training and intervention are also a key aspect of this group's work. Projects include detailed psycholinguistic case studies of the intervention process with children with specific speech and language difficulties and also group studies of how to promote spoken and written language skills in a classroom setting by working through education staff.

Programme Structure

Our research is grouped in three clusters:
  • Clinical and Interactional Linguistics
  • Cognitive Neuroscience of Speech and Language
  • Speech, Language and Literacy: Development, Difficulties and Intervention
