Dr. Wenonah Campbell
Dr. Wenonah Campbell is an Assistant Professor in the Speech-Language Pathology Program in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University. Wenonah's current research focuses on tiered models of service delivery in schools. Tiered models typically encompass three levels or tiers of service: Tier One Services are universal and beneficial to all students; Tier Two Services are targeted and necessary for some; and Tier Three Services are individualized and essential for a few. Wenonah has a particular interest in understanding and enhancing the provision of Tier One or Universal Services to school communities. A core aspect of Tier One services involves the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which is an educational framework and set of guidelines for inclusive teaching. Wenonah’s research explores the use of UDL by health professionals in preschool and school settings and is an area in which she has provided professional development. As a complement to her work in service delivery and education, Dr. Campbell also has expertise in implementation science and knowledge translation, which are fields key to achieving the objectives set out in her program of research.
