Dyslexia Parents Connection EAST*SOUTH*NORTH Meeting

Location: Pittsburgh New Church School


May 2nd, 6:30-9:00pm
Special Guest: Dr. Deborah Moncrieff, CCC-A
Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh
Communication Science and Disorders
Dr. Moncrieff joined the Communication Science and Disorders department at Pitt in 2007. Her research focuses on auditory disorders across the lifespan, with particular emphasis on the negative impact of auditory disorders on communication, language, learning, and reading. She has developed new tests for clinical assessment of APD and has called for an alternative approach in diagnosis to differentiate specific types of processing difficulties. She has coined the term “amblyaudia”to characterize a binaural integration type of APD and has developed a therapeutic approach for remediating children with amblyaudia. She uses electrophysiologic and functional magnetic resonance imaging methods to characterize levels of brain activation during binaural integration tasks in children with amblyaudia.
