Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
This description of Tara Cunningham's work was prepared when Tara Cunningham was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Recognising that with guidance, ordinary citizens can do much of the work of professional speech therapists, Tara Cunningham is revolutionising the field of speech therapy by putting parents and teachers in charge of children’s learning. As vacancy rates for speech therapists continue to grow globally, Tara is also mobilising a new generation of certified professionals with the support of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and several leading Universities including New York University and George Washington University.
