Using Photos to Talk about Communication

What’s this project about?

This project is about what people with communication difficulties think about Communication.

It is also about trying out a way of collecting research data, using photos to support conversations about the topic. We want to understand more about peoples’ experiences but also about how useful this research tool might be for people who have communication difficulties.

The project is being led by Martine Smith, a speech and language therapist and professor who works in Trinity College Dublin

 

What would I do?

You’d agree to take photos that show Communication for you.

 

And then?

You would come to an interview to explain why those photos explain Communication and why they are meaningful for you. The interview will be recorded on a voice recorder and then written down.

 

Is that it?

If you want, you can decide to have your photos included in a public exhibition, Picturing Communication: Behind the Lens

 

So now?

If you think you are interested, make sure to look at the more detailed Information Leaflet. You can also contact me, Martine Smith, at Trinity College Dublin to find out more. My email is mmsmith@tcd.ie or you can phone me at (01) 896 2027.
