I joined the Speech and Language Therapy team in 2007, having previously worked full-time as a clinical speech and language therapist in the NHS. I now work 2 days a week at the University of Strathclyde and retain clinical employment for 3 days a week in a local hospital and I feel privileged to be able to combine academic and clinical remits. I hope to bring a 'real-life' element to my teaching through my clinical work and my academic job helps me to carry out research to answer questions about why and how therapy is effective or not in the clinic. I have experience working with a range of adult acquired communication and swallowing disorders, and currently specialise clinically in voice disorders and adults stammering.
I am responsible for teaching the adult stammering and dysphagia components in the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Pathology curriculum, and lead on the Continuing Professional Development module. I contribute to teaching in aphasia, dysarthria and adult voice disorders and tutor students on clinical placements.
I am interested in exploring the client experience of therapy and clients' views on service provision, and have a specific interest in how therapy for adults who stammer can be delivered through non face-to-face means.

- Effect of a voice care programme on student teachers
- Cohen, Wendy (Principal Investigator) Andrews, Carolyn (Principal Investigator)
- The proposed study aims to introduce voice hygiene at an early stage in student teacher training and follow this up with materials designed to stimulate self-management throughout participants’ teacher training programme. This approach will be evaluated using validated questionnaires and a demographic questionnaire. This will establish if there is a sustained impact of vocal hygiene training on student teachers, with a focus on those who are following a shorter duration of training so that retention might be facilitated with the project lasting during their registered studies. Follow up of participants to the end of their first year as a newly qualified teacher will be offered to participants who opt in to the study so that longer term impact can be evaluated
