Our aim is to provide useful information and resources for families in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area.
The goal is to help you find available treatment options and to better understand child speech and language disorders and their treatment, including the types of research that support such treatment.
This web resource started with suggestions from students of Professor William Katz’s graduate course in Speech Science (Spring, 2007). The pages were developed as an independent study project by graduate student Julie Upshaw, supervised by Dr. Katz. Julie now works locally as a speech language pathologist and has a particular interest in autism.
Diane Garst Walsh gets special thanks for clinical insights and help with editing. We also thank the UT Dallas Callier clinicians and faculty associates for their careful help in evaluating local programs and approaches.
