Megan York Roberts
Megan Roberts, PhD, CCC-SLP, is an associate professor in the Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Her work focuses on improving access to effective early intervention for toddlers with developmental delays (e.g., autism, hearing loss). This clinically-based line of research examines new ways of identifying autism and different variations of caregiver-mediated communication interventions tailored specifically for different populations of children. Her research has been funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders and the Institute of Education Sciences.
