Research Interests

Suzanne C. Hopf is passionate about achieving equity in service provision for people with disability internationally. Suzanne's research seeks to apply the World Health Organization International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (WHO, 2001) to better understand how barriers and facilitators for supporting people with communication disability are created and reinforced by individual, community, and societal factors. Suzanne is committed to being a part of an international network of research practitioners who celebrate diversity and believe in sharing knowledge and resources for the greater benefit of all mankind where ever they may live. Suzanne's 2017 PhD 'Supporting Fijian children's communication" provided recommendations for the holistic management of communication disability in Fiji and detailed a four-stage Communication Capacity Research framework for undertaking research with culturally and linguistically diverse people with communication and swallowing disabilities in underserved regions of the world.
