Principle Investigator: Frances A. Burns
Hello Dr. Burns,
I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Communciation Sciences and Disorders at the University of Central Florida (UCF). The doctoral program at UCF is unique in that its focus is on language and literacy. I have an interest in African American English and its impact on reading among adolescents. I am definitely trying to understand the added value of SLPs in working with dialect speakers at the secondary level . I really enjoyed reading your blog and the information is very insightful. I am in complete awe of the research lab for AAE that you are managing and would love to have an opportunity to talk with you. I actually recognized you at ASHA in San Diego, but did not get a chance to talk with you. I attended the presentation by Lisa Green regarding the Dialect Density Measure.
I am a student trying to find her way in this research and I haven’t had as much support regarding the topic of AAE as I had hoped. So, I am happy to see the work that you, Dr. Green and course Dr. Seymour are doing.
I’m so sorry to just be responding to your message. Unfortunately my blog gets a lot of spam and I must have overlooked your message. Thank you so much for writing, I appreciate your comments. I wish you would have stopped me at ASHA. I will be back in my office the week of the 23rd, we should arrange a time to talk.
Hi Dr. Burns,
Thank you for responding and I apologize for my late response this time I would love to talk with you more. I hope all is well.
