Graduate students in Dr. Hegland’s Motor Speech Disorders class will once again be providing weekly blog posts for the UAD website.  This task, which counts towards their grade in the class, affords students the opportunity to relate their academic studies with the diseases and conditions that real people experience on a daily basis.  Whether in the form of a public service announcement with general information about speech function, or focusing on a specific person’s experience or event in the popular media, the blog provides up to date information on important factors affecting communication and quality of life of people.
