The Research Symposium is funded, in
part, by a grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other
Communication Disorders (NIDCD).
Papers based on the 2018 Research Symposium were published in a Research Forum in the
November 2019 issue of Journal of Speech,
Language, and Hearing Research (JSLHR). They will be available through
PubMed Central beginning in May 2020.
