The Team

We are a multidisciplinary group of paediatricians, psychiatrists, allied health professionals (speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists), clinical psychologists and social scientists.

We supervise students studying for a variety of degrees (for example PhD, MD, DClinPsy, MSc). For more than 10 years, our research has included children or adults and relatives who work with us on the research, ensuring it is relevant to the community. You can find out more about the team below.
