Speech Research Group


Roa'a AlSulaiman

I am a first year PhD student supervised by Professor Peter Howell and Professor John Harris. My PhD project focuses on separating children who have word-finding difficulty (WFD) from those who have other speech production problems. To achieve that goal, I build on the Universal non-word repetition (UNWR) task by creating an easy tool that can equitably test Arabic and English children.  Once children have been identified, experimental interventions are delivered as follows:

  1. Phonological training for children with WFD
  2. Working memory training for children with fluency difficulty
