Six researchers at the Speech and Language Therapy Research Unit pause among their protocols to reflect on their research. All practising clinicians in a previous or parallel life, they describe what impact their research has had on their approach to practice. Interviews with the parents of speech/language delayed children and with clients with aphasia have altered approaches to treatment for two of the researchers. The need to motivate cooperation and commitment when working in partnership with primary schools is emphasised, as well as the difficulties in adhering to research protocols are described as well as the overuse of feedback in clinical practice.
