Research is a very important aspect of Connect's work. It helps ensure that we are developing and providing relevant and effective therapies.

Connect's researchers look at existing and new therapies and listen to what services people with communication disability want.

People with communication disability will be included in planning research. They will be fully consulted and informed about Connect's research projects.

Our researchers and therapists will work with researchers and academics from other fields (e.g. public health, anthropology, linguistics) to develop and evaluate best practice.
