Assistant Professor David J. Hajjar, Ph.D., CCC-SLP and alumna Kathleen Mulkerin, M.S., CF-SLP (’20 & ’22) have published an article in the peer reviewed journal Perspectives of the ASHA Special Interest Groups.

The American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) is the professional association for speech-language pathologists and audiologists in the United States and publishes five different academic journals. The article is titled: Visual Scene Displays for Children and Adults: Using Case Studies to Bridge Research and Clinical Practice. Dr. Hajjar and Ms. Mulkerin report on the current research on using visual scene displays (VSDs) to support expressive and receptive communication for children and adults with complex communication needs (CCN).  Two individuals who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) are profiled in the article and provide speech-language pathologists with an evidence- based guide to support the use of VSDs in clinical practice.  To view the abstract for the article, please visit:    https://pubs.asha.org/doi/10.1044/2022_PERSP-22-00162
