EVIDENCED BASED PRACTICE
Evidence based practice is at the core of clinical practice, supporting students to the highest standards.
Independent Speech language therapists have been involved with different projects and studies at University College London funded by the Wellcome Trust.
These speech therapy projects have looked at the neurological basis of language functions. Using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and Statistical Parametric Mapping software, speech therapists and neuroscientists have been able to build and analyse brain imaging data pictures to see which part of the brain people use to speak, read and write with.
Speech Therapists have also been advisors to BBC and youth television programmes.
