The Child Language and Literacy Lab, overseen by Dr. Laura DeThorne, includes a variety of undergraduate and graduate students interested in the causal influences and communication practices associated with childhood communication disorders, including autism and apraxia of speech. Student involvement usually involves a weekly lab meeting and a variety of tasks, including but not limited to literature reviews, behavioral observations, transcription/coding of audio-video data, and in some cases direct provision of speech-language services.
