Experts by Experience Panel
"I really enjoyed meeting the students and hearing their questions and I hope it helps them understand their future clients and their families a little better."
The experts by experience panel are a group of people who have accessed speech and language therapy services for themselves or someone they live with and have an interest in being involved in the training of future Speech and Language Therapists.
The members meet with staff at the University of Reading a few times a year to contribute to the course planning to ensure client's perspectives are considered at all levels of training. Panel members also meet directly with students at open days, during the interview process and also during 'meet the clients and carers' workshops.
Members of the group have shared that attending the group and being listened to makes them feel valued and they are pleased to be able to give something back to the service.
If you or a family member has had involvement with a Speech and Language Therapist and are interested in joining the group please contact the Clinical Tutor team.
