Working with families

Dr Nicole Watts Pappas was my PhD student from 2004-2007. The topic of her thesis was "Parental involvement in intervention for speech impairment". She was awarded the CSU Faculty of Education Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award and co-edited a book titled Working with families in speech-language pathology published in the US by Plural Publishing. Since this time she has taken her topic to heart and has had two lovely children, Xander and Zoe. She recently has returned to work and has been appointed as an adjunct research associate at Charles Sturt University. She also has been appointed the guest editor for the 2013 Speech Pathology Australia National Conference Proceedings published in the International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology. It is great to be working with her again.
