Douglas H. Whalen

Distinguished Professor

Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, The Graduate Center
Improving Clinical Speech Remediation with Ultrasound Technology

Professor Whalen is in the second year of his five-year, $658K, NIH NIDCD translational grant, Improving Clinical Speech Remediation with Ultrasound Technology. He focuses on the misarticulation of the “r” sound in children ages 5-8 and how improvement of “r” articulation often occurs when visual feedback of the tongue is provided through the use of ultrasound. By placing an ultrasound device under the chin, a visual image of the tongue’s movement during articulation is obtained. While the primary goal is to implement the accessibility of technical training to speech pathology clinicians, Whalen, along with colleagues at the University of Cincinnati, NYU, Syracuse, and Haskins Laboratories, gathered additional evidence on tongue shapes and the benefits of visual feedback through ultrasound technology. “The use of the ultrasound device has thus far proven to be an effective treatment in patients who misarticulate the “r” sound and lends itself to a better quality of life.”
