Fiona Menger

Teaching Fellow in Speech & Language Sci

Background

I qualified as a speech and language therapist at the University of Reading in 1998, and in the years that followed I worked within the NHS.  The majority of my clinical experience has been with adults with acquired neurological disorders, predominantly stroke and progressive conditions. 

In 2012 I was awarded a Stroke Association Junior Research Fellowship which has allowed me to carry out research on identifying the barriers and facilitators to people with aphasia using the Internet.  My current role is as a Teaching Fellow in Speech and Language Sciences. I will be teaching on the Child Development and Speech and Language Acquisition module.

I am also a trustee of the North East Trust for Aphasia (NETA).
