Bon voyage Sarah #2

During 2013 Sarah Verdon is collecting data for her PhD in sites across the world. She completed data collection in South America and Europe in July/August and has been back in Bathurst during September and October. While in Bathurst we have been working on revisions to the following manuscripts, as well as finalising new papers:

1.   McLeod, S., Verdon, S., & Bennetts Kneebone, L. - Celebrating Indigenous Australian children’s speech and language competence.
2.   McLeod, S. & Verdon, S. - A review of speech sound assessments in 18 languages other than English.
3.   Verdon, S., McLeod, S., & McDonald, S. - A geographical analysis of speech-language pathology services to support multilingual children.
4.   Verdon, S., McLeod, S., & Winsler, A. - Language maintenance and loss in a population study of young Australian children.
5.   Verdon, S., McLeod, S., & Wong, S. - Reconceptualising practice with multilingual children with speech sound disorders: People, practicalities, and policy.
She is looking forward to attending 2 conferences and collecting data in Asia and North America over the next 2 months.
