I am an associate professor and Chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Temple University in Philadelphia. My research focuses on speech sound development and disorders in Spanish-English bilingual children. I also have an interest in least-biased assessment and treatment of bilingual children with speech sound disorders.
