Dr McLennan’s research focusses predominantly on vocational rehabilitation and resilience, including: (1) early intervention vocational rehabilitation following spinal cord injury, and (2) culturally safe vocational rehabilitation for First Australians with disability. Her research aims to support and develop models of rehabilitation practice that empower and enable people with disability to reach their full, self-directed vocational and social potential. Dr McLennan is currently a chief investigator on the evaluation of QLD's first early intervention vocational rehabilitation program for people with spinal cord injury, and is developing a strong publishing record in peer-reviewed publications.
