Ms Hannah Lane, BSc (Hons)
Speech and Language Therapist
I studied Speech and Language Therapy at Birmingham City University and graduated in 2016. I am now working as a paediatric Speech and Language Therapist for Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS trust. I work in the community and my role is split across community clinics, a severe learning disability school and pyramids of mainstream schools. I have recently been given the new role as Cleft Lip and Palate LINK therapist so am now responsible for the management and therapy for a caseload of children with Cleft Lip and Palate and an important part of my job is liaising with regional Cleft hubs and specialists.
I am working with the Unit on a project as part of my internship with the National institute of Health Research which will take place for the next 6 months. The project I am involved in is aiming to explore the impact of early intervention on speech in children born with cleft palate. This is an area of significant interest to me and I am hoping to expand this research into an MSc project and contribute to the growing evidence-base for children with speech difficulties.
