Kathryn Connaghan,  PhD, CCC-SLP
Research Associate

 

Dr. Connaghan’s research focuses on understanding the underlying mechanisms of speech impairment and the social experiences of children and adults with dysarthria. This work is designed to identify specific aspects of speech impairment that affect daily communication interactions, overall participation, and that can be targeted for assessment and treatment.
