Sue Wright

As a teacher of the deaf and Educational Audiologist I have worked with deaf children and families in several urban, inner city communities. As Head of Service for Deaf Children in Bradford I further developed my interest in deafness and the impact it has on families in multilingual communities.

I have worked as a regional tutor on the University of Leeds MA Deaf Education programme for several years, supporting teachers of the deaf in the north of England. After working with the University of Leeds on the Language Planning Document, I am now working with Ruth Swanwick on the British Academy project researching learning and language planning with bimodal and multilingual families.
