Dr. Laurence B. Leonard Will Receive the Callier Prize

We are pleased to honor Dr. Laurence B. Leonard, Rachel E. Stark Distinguished Professor in the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University, with the 2015 Callier Prize. This biennial award recognizes individuals whose leadership and research contributions have promoted scientific advances and significant developments in the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders.

Dr. Leonard's research is aimed at understanding the nature of specific language impairment in children. Together with his colleagues, Leonard has studied children with specific language impairment who speak such languages as English, Italian, Hebrew, Swedish, Spanish, Cantonese, Finnish, and Hungarian.

Dr. Leonard will be the keynote speaker at the Callier Prize Conference on May 1.
