Adult Communication Disorders Laboratory
About the Lab:
Adult communication disorders such as aphasia, Parkinson’s disease and dementia are studied in the lab from empirical as well as descriptive research approaches. Along with the courses taught in the department, in addition to the onsite Speech and Hearing Center, the neurogenics lab offers students, clients and families many opportunities to consult with and learn about potential projects and latest research in the field of adult communication disorders. The lab has several cooperating sites and participates in onsite, off-site as well as multi-partner projects. For information on study participation or any questions related to the lab, please contact Dr. Linda S. Carozza, PhD, CCC-SLP.
Dr. Carozza is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Pace University, the past Founding Director of the MS program in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center. She has authored several books, numerous articles and is a frequent invited speaker. Her research and practice is in adult neurogenic communication disorders.
Current research in the CSD Lab involves assessment of communicative effectiveness and self-perception through a modified version of the lab-developed CEASRS tool as a gauge of psychosocial adjustment after the COVID-19 pandemic. Other correlates being explored include psychosocial supports and hardiness.
