I will be attending the workshop “Speech Disorders throughout the Lifespan” at the Institute of Neurology in UCL on the 26th of November. I look forward to updating you readers on what I learn. Below is a brief overview of the workshop followed by the speakers and the title of their talks.

“In this workshop, leading researchers will outline some of the latest findings on the behavioural, neural and genetic causes of speech disorders throughout the lifespan.  The meeting will offer an exciting opportunity to discuss the clinical implications of these findings.”
