While significant progress has been made in understanding the underlying mechanisms that affect communication in various conditions, and in developing assessment and treatment strategies, progress is slower than it could be because of significant gaps in training of new communication scientists. The current training plan seeks to fill these gaps by;


  • Providing targeted training in the cognitive neuroscience of communication disorders

  • More meaningful connections between trainees and the clinical populations they study

  • By preparing this generation of trainees with the necessary set of professional tools to conduct and disseminate impactful research.

Coming to CNC-CT in 2021...Teresa Girolamo is a Ph.D. candidate in child language at the University of Kansas. Her research focuses on the language abilities of racial/ethnic minority young adults on the autism spectrum.

Congratulations to Silvia Clement-Lam and her husband on the birth of their beautiful baby, Idris
