Presentations

Presentations 2015

Members of the Speech Imaging & Visualization Laboratory frequently present at local, state, national, and international venues. Annually, our lab’s research abstracts are presented at the university Research Day and throughout Research and Creative Activity Week (RCAW). We additionally present research at the American Cleft Palate/Craniofacial Association Conference and the Annual ASHA Convention regularly. Below are some of our past presentations.
