Serving Practitioners

Established in 2015, Napier Hill Press aims to promote the work of research-active speech and language therapy professionals for use by practitioners in adult and paediatric SLT services. Our focus is on specialist-level therapy resources backed up by a strong theoretical rationale or scientific evidence.

The launch of Napier Hill Press will make a substantial contribution to ensuring highest quality professional resources for clinical assessments and interventions. Don’t hesitate to contact them!

Developing New Publications

Our aim is to support practitioners to access high quality, practical resources and use evidence-based intervention and assessment materials in their work.

Featured Publication - The Consent Support Tool

We are using the Consent Support Tool in our study to help us decide whether someone has communication difficulties that would impact on their capacity to take part. The CST guides us on how best to present information to someone with aphasia.

Dr Shirley Thomas, Lecturer in Rehabilitation Psychology, University of Nottingham

The CST is an evidence-based screening and support tool to include people with communication disorders in research.

The CST enables you to assess a person’s ability to understand the requirements of your research project and provides guidance on how you can modify your information sheets to ensure they are fully informed.
