Speech pathologist Amy wins scholarship at Curtin University

A SPEECH pathologist from Innaloo has received a scholarship to enable her to support people with a disability.

Not-for-profit organisation Independent Living Centre WA gave Amy Litton the scholarship, which aims to give employees an opportunity to develop in an area that will enable them to further support people with a disability and the frail aged, their carers and families.

Ms Litton said the scholarship would enable her to undertake a Masters of Philosophy at Curtin University.

ā€œIā€™m particularly interested in conducting research to look at the outcomes achieved through Augmentative and Alternative Communication intervention for people with complex communication needs, and the length of time positive outcomes take,ā€ she said.
