Dr. Jonathan Preston, Associate Professor, recently received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to conduct a randomized control trial testing different approaches to speech therapy for school-age children with apraxia of speech. The 3-year study will test the differences between treatments with and without ultrasound biofeedback of the tongue during speech therapy. It will also explore different models of service delivery (intensive treatment vs. more traditional scheduling). Megan Leece, one of our Gebbie Clinic Teaching Professors, as well as a number of undergraduate and graduate students, will be assisting with the project.
