Child Health Research from the University of the West of England

On July 11th Anna Blackwell represented the Bristol Speech and Language Research Unit at a local (Bristol) event which was conceived to engage the public with the research and knowledge exchange activities of the University of the West of England' Child Health Researchers.

Brasserie Blanc as people started to arrive.

The event was set at Brasserie Blanc and cream teas were provided for everyone to partake of.  Interesting conversations were had with all the attendees, with some of the members of public offering challenging interpretations of research findings and inspiring furutre research questions.

Hopefully this is the first of many future events.  If you want to follow UWE's child health research the their twitter name is @CHCR_UWE

Raising Awareness: A video for speech, language and communication needs

Vikki Greenhalgh spent some time working with us at BSLTRU (, and has now been part of the team of speech and language therapy students that spent an incredible day with children from Dawn House ICAN school.

This video is an outcome from that meeting and allows teenagers with communication difficulties to provide insight into what they find difficult when communicating and how people can help them. 

Well done all involved!
