Within the Department of Communicative Disorders, undergraduate and graduate students find a myriad of opportunities to do research in their fields of interest. Recent student research projects include the following:

  • Measurement of emotion processing in cartoon and human videos by children with typical development and autism
  • Assessment of hearing health in rural Alabama
  • Pediatric feeding and swallowing assessment and treatment
  • Gesture use of politicians during presidential debates
  • Efficacy of early parent-mediated autism interventions and dissemination of parent interventions into underserved communities
