SSESW academic and CBA member Catherine Storey was invited to join the Sharland Foundation Developmental Disabilities ABA Research and Impact Network. It focusses on intellectual disabilities and using ABA-based methods to support individuals’ skills development and quality of life and to reduce the impact of problem behaviours forming barriers to learning or community participation.

Catherine attended the first meeting for her research strand “Teaching skills including pre-school and academic skills to children and young people, primarily in school contexts” in Coventry earlier this academic year. With fellow Foundation members, Catherine is running two literacy projects with Mencap NI and The Fostering Network.
