My primary research interest lies in Augmentative and Alternative Communication and the way we learn language when we are forced to express ourselves through non-verbal means. Specifically, I am interested in the effects of interface design on procedural learning and therefore on fluency of language production via speech-generating devices (SGDs)

Professional Focus

Prior to coming to CSUEB, I worked as a speech-language pathologist and technology consultant, with a focus on children with severe-profound communicative disorders. I am certified in a variety of intervention programs and strategies, including Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (Center for AAC and Autism) and It Takes Two to Talk (a Hanen Program).
