Clinical Applications of Speech Acoustics Lab
Lab director: Dr. Thea Knowles
The CASA Lab studies speech production in people with motor speech disorders using a combination of acoustic, perceptual, and person-centered techniques. The overall goals of the CASA Lab are to better quantify the characteristics of disordered speech production, as well as to identify mechanisms to improve intervention options for these populations.
