The ASHA Leader features Dr. Judith Duchan

The ASHA Leader features Dr. Judith Duchan, Emeritus Professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences at the University at Buffalo, for her pioneer work in child language development and disorders. Before Dr. Duchan retired from the department, she was well-known for her work in developing qualitative assessments of child language, such as the use of videoanalysis. She was interested in the functions of behavior from a developmental perspective, years before the behavioral term “functional behavioral analysis” was coined. She also delved into ethnographic literature on stories, and believed stories are a rich source of data to understand people as social and cultural beings.

For details about the article, please click here. Dr. Duchan will also present in a workshop held by the Department in October 2014. Stay tuned!
