She was an Australian Research Council Future Fellow (2009-2013).

Professor McLeod's research focuses on monolingual and multilingual children's speech acquisition. She applies the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF-CY, World Health Organization, 2007) to children with speech sound disorders and is named as the only individual in Australia to have contributed to the development of the ICF-CY (WHO, 2007, p. xxv) . Her research foregrounds the right of everyone (particularly children) to participate fully in society. Professor McLeod also researches the prevalence and impact of childhood speech sound disorders and links this to policy and service delivery issues. Professor McLeod has been an invited speaker at conferences and universities in US, UK, Iceland, Turkey, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Jamaica, Hong Kong, Vietnam, New Zealand, and Australia.
