Research
I am a linguist and speech-language pathologist studying speech development in children with and without phonological delay or disorder. My research aims to explain how children’s articulatory and perceptual limitations shape their early phonological development. In the clinical domain, I am interested in understanding why some children’s speech sound errors do not resolve in response to conventional forms of treatment. I have an active program of clinical research investigating the efficacy of intervention that uses technologies (e.g. ultrasound, acoustic analysis) to provide visual biofeedback for persistent speech sound errors in children.
