Working memory and severe speech impairment
This research project is focused on exploring the relationships between severe congenital speech impairment and working memory. Many working memory tasks require participants to verbalize responses. For those with severe speech impairments, this response mode is unavailable. One goal of this project is to develop assessment tools that are appropriate to individuals with severe speech and physical impairments. The research is in collaboration with colleagues in Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
