Congratulations to Emma Grace (pictured centre) on winning the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences 3-Minute Thesis Competition for her talk about her PhD on “Assisting youth who are non-speaking to chat. Does e-mentoring work?’
Emma’s research is exploring e-mentoring as a potential new strategy to improve the communication and conversation skills of young people with a disability such as cerebral palsy or acquired brain injury. Emma’s PhD is being co-supervised by Southgate researcher Dr Lareen Newman (pictured right) with Dr Pammi Raghavendra from Flinders Disability & Community Inclusion Unit. Further information on undertaking a PhD with the Southgate Institute is available here.
