Wenonah Campbell, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science and a Scientist with CanChild. Wenonah has a health professional background in speech-language pathology and received her doctorate from Western University, where her research examined how children with language-learning impairments respond to situations involving peer conflict and bullying.

Since coming to McMaster as a post-doctoral fellow in 2009, Wenonah has been part of a research team that has been developing, evaluating, and implementing a new school-based model of collaborative service delivery for children with special needs called Partnering for Change (http://www.partneringforchange.ca/). She is particularly interested in exploring how health professionals and educators may collaboratively implement Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to enhance inclusion and accessibility in early childhood and school settings.
