One of our recent Au.D. graduates, Dr. Sam Panning Conn, was recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology for work that she started as her Au.D. capstone project. Congratulations to Sam and her co-authors, Dr. Rachel Lee and Dr. Sara Misurelli!
The aim of their study, Breaking Down Communication Barriers: Assessing the Need for Audiologists to Have Access to Clinically Relevant Sign Language, was to gain a better understanding of audiologists’ knowledge of Deaf Culture and American Sign Language (ASL) and evaluate motivation for instruction in signing abilities.
