Departmental Laboratory Resources

SLP is fortunate to have laboratory space in Fisher Hall and access to the anatomy lab in the Rangos Health Sciences Building, nearby on campus.  Our lab space is used for faculty and student research and as an adjunct to classroom learning.

Research Lab

Many faculty have lab space in the Department in which they conduct ongoing research projects.  The Research Lab is located in Room 413 Fisher Hall.

Examples of current, ongoing laboratory research projects include:


"Effects of Context on the Communicative Performance of People with Aphasia"


"The Role of Prosodic Stress and Speech Perturbation on the Temporal Synchronization of Speech and Deictic Gestures"

The lab is also being used to study:

  • Speech and Gesture Interaction
  • Pediatric Speech and Gesture Production
  • Prosodic Development and Disorders
  • Prosody and Speech Production Planning


The SPPIT lab (Speech Perception/ Production & Innovative Technology Lab) is a learning laboratory for students and faculty alike .  This lab affords computers and advanced software for students to utilize for work related to coursework and clinic.

For example, the SPPIT lab is used in the Speech Science course for students to analyze speech or voice samples along a variety of parameters and characteristics..  Additionally, the students have access to BoardMaker which is a great tool for use in making therapy session materials.


The Augmentative and Alternative Communication lab, located in 414 Fisher,  is used by students to gain hands-on experience with various AAC devices and complete lab assignments which are part of the AAC class.  This lab is open to students for use at anytime and provides materials for the students to utilize in their therapy sessions.

Anatomy Lab

As a part of the coursework, students will have the opportunity to work in the Anatomy Lab located in the Rangos Building.  While in the lab, the student will gain hands on experience working with cadavers as part of the Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing and Dysphagia courses.  Link to the Rangos Anatomy Lab
