Gavett Honored as American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Fellow

preferred-for-website14-8029-GAVETT-027Clinical Associate Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Elizabeth A. Gavett, MA, CCC-SLP has been named a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The status of Fellow is retained for life and is one of the highest honors ASHA can bestow.

This honor recognizes professional or scientific achievement and is given to a member who has made outstanding contributions to the discipline of communication sciences and disorders – contributions that are significant and would be so regarded within and beyond one’s community or state. While thousands of ASHA members fulfill their responsibilities competently, only a small percentage have, by virtue of the quality and amount of their contributions, distinguished themselves sufficiently to warrant recognition by election to Fellow in ASHA.

Gavett’s scholarly and practice interests include accent modification as well as phonological and articulation disorders.

Gavett will be formally recognized at the 2014 ASHA Convention in Orlando, Florida this November.
