Speech, Language, Cognition and Communication Lab

The Speech, Language, Cognition and Communication Lab, co-directed by Tom Campbell and Chris Dollaghan, was established in 2007. It is home to studies of speech and language in children, including the factors that influence the development of speech and language skills and prevention, early identification and treatment of speech and language disorders.

Lab resources include state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for acquiring, manipulating and analyzing the acoustic, visual, kinematic and behavioral parameters of speech and language in children.
