The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association The baby signing market continues to grow, but do parents really need to teach their infants specific signs for basic communication? And do babies really understand the concepts behind these signs? According to Gwen Dewar, an evolutionary anthropologist and author of the website Parenting Science, yes, but she further states, "Babies are already engaging in spontaneous gestures. You don't necessarily need to teach your baby an abstract sign in order to communicate about things like that." Read on for more and check out this 2010 Leader article for more information about the research and controversy behind baby signing: https://on.asha.org/2RUztHC.16.01.2019 at 10:58 amLike

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Research Tuesday! In this Perspectives article, authors Natalie F. Douglas and Vanessa L. Burshnic outline how implementation science can contribute to the advancement of communication sciences and disorders through its impact on both clinical research and clinical practice. Implementation science facilitates bridging the gap between research and clinical practice for audiologists, SLPs, and researchers in communication sciences and disorders (CSD). This article first briefly discusses implementation science’s pertinent definitions and history. Then, it highlights information pertaining to the position of implementation science within the larger realm of clinical practice research. In addition, the authors review an exemplar study to inform clinical researchers in CSD. Finally, Douglas and Burshnic emphasize the importance of implementation science by outlining ways that audiologists and SLPs can use implementation science to both inform their clinical practice and contribute to the evidence base of the professions. #slpeeps #audpeeps https://on.asha.org/2H6GWPxThe American Speech-Language-Hearing Association added a new photo.15.01.2019 at 10:40 amLike

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association As I reflect on an incredible year as ASHA president, I am struck by the dedication of ASHA staff and its Board of Directors to the association and our members. Based on my travels on behalf of ASHA, I am also struck by how much our professions are developing globally. My attendance at association conventions in Canada, Europe, the Philippines and China opened my eyes to the perspectives of our international colleagues and their hard work helping the citizens of those countries develop their communication potential.13.01.2019 at 08:25 pmLike
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association My research is in the area of developmental stuttering. I use multimodal neuroimaging methods to investigate neural bases of stuttering in children and adults. I currently conduct a large-scale longitudinal study, funded by an NIH-R01 grant, that examines developmental trajectories of brain, language, cognitive and other measures that predict persistence versus recovery of stuttering during childhood.

Another area of research looks at the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques on increasing fluency and brain functional connectivity linked to fluent speech in speakers who stutter. The ASHFoundation clinical research award provided seed funding for this latter work.
