Ms. Caroline Jagoe

Assistant Professor (Clin Speech & Language Studies)
7/9 STH LEINSTER ST


My background is in Speech & Language Therapy, where most of my clinical and research work has focused on adults with acquired communication disorders related to neurological conditions and mental health disorders. I have worked in a range of clinical settings, both in Ireland and in South Africa. My research interests relate to the impact of communication disabilities, specifically aphasia and primary progressive aphasia, on participation, wellbeing and identity. I am interested in the intersection between communication and mental health, both in the contexts of adults with mental health disorders and in relation to the psychological wellbeing of adults with acquired communication disorders. My work focuses on individual and social interventions to increase participation and inclusion, addressing barriers within the communication environment, thereby enhancing access to the social environment, improving healthcare encounters and reintegration into society. I see this work as linked to social justice and reducing inequalities. I have a particular interest in how these challenges can be addressed in a global context, particularly where resources are constrained. In addition I am interested in the application of Relevance Theory to communication disorders is, where my work has focused on metarepresentational abilities of people with schizophrenia as revealed in conversation; as well as on Relevance Theoretic analysis of conversational strategies in interactions in which one partner has a communication disability.
