Faculty Scholarship Activity

All of the faculty maintain active clinical research programs. Faculty use grant funding to support their scholarly interests, publish and present their research at local, state, regional and national conferences. Much of their research includes graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in learning more about research in speech-language pathology and audiology. The following are some of the faculty’s recent scholarship.
