Featuring the collaborative work of Tara O’Neill and Kelsey Mandak and cross-disciplinary faculty mentors/co-authors to enhance the abilities of SLPs working with children who have complex communication needs and their families with AAC interventions aligned with Family Systems Theory.
The program specific to PhD scholars has been designed to be comprehensive and provide focused, individualized, direct experiences across education (coursework and teaching), research, and leadership skills.
