Feb. 14 – Elizabeth (Liz) K. Hanson, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Hanson, associate professor of communication sciences & disorders, will discuss the benefits of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) treatments. She will touch on how AAC treatments can mitigate consequences like isolation, depression and loss of autonomy when speech does not work.

March 21 – Meghann Jarchow, Ph.D.
