Speech Perception Lab Represents SLHS in Arizona


Doctor of Audiology (AuD) students Caitlin Smith and Elena Hoogland recently traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona, to represent the Speech Perception Lab and the Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences Department at the Annual Scientific and Technology Conference of the American Auditory Society. The American Auditory Society promotes the translation of scientific discovery to clinical practice in hearing and balance disorders. Smith presented a research poster on speech perception differences between sound booths titled, “Sound Booth and Simulated Reverberation Effects on Speech Perception.” Hoogland presented a research poster on the discrimination of different sound booth environments titled, “Simulated Reverberation Effects on Discrimination of Sound Booth Environments.” Both posters generated great feedback and interest. The department congratulates Smith and Hoogland for their research and work representing UF.
