And through active collaborations across the campus.
This summer, undergraduate students became involved in on-campus research in the HESP department. With faculty mentors including Dr. Rochelle Newman, Dr. Jared Novick, and Dr. Yi Ting Huang, these students gained hands-on experience in labs working on studies that could have real-life, clinical implications.
On Wednesday, October 19th, Dr. Erica Mihcael will present a talk as part of the HESP Seminar Series. Her talk, "Speech Perception Training for Adult Learners of Mandarin & Korean," will be given in LeFrak Room 2208 from 12:00PM- 1:00PM. We hope to see you there!
Dr. Nan Bernstein Ratner and her colleague Brian MacWhinney (Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University) have just received two major funded grants! A grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the project titled: A shared database for the study of the development of language fluency will fund the development of an online fluency database as part of the TalkBank initiative (www.talkbank.org).

Elizabeth Schmidt was two months old when the Titanic sank in 1912. Now, more than 104 years later, she’s outlived every passenger who escaped the sunken ship. She speaks slowly but in a clear voice, can still walk with the aid of a walker and changes her hearing aid batteries—roughly half the size of a dime—without any assistance. And for the last 26 years, she’s visited the University of Maryland Hearing and Speech Clinic annually for a check-up.
