Collaboration for Communication Network

Our mission and vision

Our aim is to establish a research agenda in collaborative practice with parents and to take this agenda forward. We believe that this research agenda should have a strong practical/clinical focus to support practitioners to reflect and think creatively about how to work with parents. 

To achieve our goals, we are currently engaged in three work-streams: 

  • Mapping the field with regard to research on working with parents in different contexts internationally 
  • Developing guidelines for teaching and learning methods that we can use to prepare speech and language therapists in training to work collaboratively with parents
  • Exploring ways of engaging parents in research
