The UT Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders kicks off the spring semester FLASH (Friday Language and Speech, Hearing) brown-bag series on Friday, Jan. 23.

The series will include presentations about hearing, speech and language topics as they relate to both children and adults.

“The FLASH series is open to students, faculty and staff who are interested in communication and communication disorders,” said Diane Garst, a clinical lecturer in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences who helped to organize the spring semester series.
