Human Speech Kinematics Experimental Studies (HUSKIES) Lab

huskielab2

The HUSKIES Lab explores language learning in children with autism spectrum disorder, developmental language disorder and typical language development. As our name suggests, we use unique methods of capturing language, such as speech kinematic measures (for example, lip and jaw movement), during learning.

Our focus is language learning mechanisms in children with atypical development, with the ultimate goal of improving speech and language interventions for these children.
