Emily Dawes has completed her PhD, which looked at oral inferential comprehension in children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). Emily also has ample experience working clinically with children with DLD and supports teachers in a specialist education context. Katrina Kelso has worked extensively as a clinician in private practice, and is currently completing her PhD.
