And talking about updates: We will be presenting some of our pilot data at the Motor Speech Conference as well as the BAAP colloquium. See you in San Diego and Cardiff.


It’s been a little quiet but we were busy collecting data – we have completed data collection for time point 1!

275 children from 23 different primary schools across the Scottish belt took part in our project. We have recorded speech from children living in Fife, the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire, North and South Lanarkshire.

Thank you so much to all the head teachers inviting our research team to their schools, thank you to all the parents for their interest in our project and thank you to all the children who are now part of this project.

And finally thank you to our amazing team for traveling Scotland to collect the data!
