Congratulations to our Education Working Group member, Dr Rena Lyons, on her recent publication  “Well-Being and Resilience in Children with Speech and Language Disorders”, co-authored with Prof Sue Roulstone, and published in the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research.

Using narrative inquiry, the aim of the study was to understand the experiences of children with speech and language disorders from their own perspectives focusing on risks to their well-being and protective indicators that may promote resilience.

Dr Rena Lyons is a Senior Lecturer in Speech and Language Therapy in the School of Health Sciences at NUI Galway. Her research interests are in the areas of: qualitative research; listening to the perspectives of service users; evidence-based practice; identity construction; children’s perspectives; and socio-cultural aspects of communication disorders.
