Involved in a wide range of research projects that push the boundaries of knowledge in our field, Penn State’s Communication Science and Disorders Department has developed broad expertise in communication disabilities, developmental disabilities, speech production, alternative communication, language development, visual support, neurophysiological aspects of communication — and so much more.
