Neville Hennessey lectures primarily in the Bachelor of Science (Speech Pathology) program at Curtin University. The areas in which Neville teaches includes speech science and acoustic phonetics, psycholinguistics, research methods and statistics. Neville also supervises research students in Speech Pathology and Psychology, ranging from Honours to PhD. Research interests include dyslexia, psycholinguistics, stuttering, normal and disordered speech and language development, including the relationship between the emergence of speech and language skills in infancy and later language and literacy development, and the relationship between speech perception and production.
Cognitive processes in language perception and production. Dyslexia and reading development. Acquired and developmental language disorders. Speech disorders including stuttering. Human performance. Speech science, including digital signal processing of normal and disordered speech and swallowing. Dysphagia.
