What is Tummy Time?
Tummy Time is one of baby’s first exercises—and the most important!
Tummy Time is the period during the day your baby spends awake and on their stomach. It is a crucial exercise for baby’s motor, visual, and sensory development.
Baby can begin Tummy Time as a newborn. They can continue to do Tummy Time throughout their first year. #SLP2b #SLPeeps #CSD #UniversityofMemphisCSD

Voice evaluations and voice therapy are provided for individuals of all ages with voice disorders. A referral and laryngeal examination by an otolaryngologist (ENT) is required before the initiation of voice therapy. Lasting voice improvement is generally the result of a team approach involving both the laryngologist and speech-language pathologist. In voice therapy, clients learn about vocal hygiene and how to apply appropriate vocal techniques to reduce or eliminate unhealthy vocal behaviors. Trial voice therapy is available for clients before considering surgical options.

A specialized laboratory, consisting of state-of-the-art technology, is available to provide initial measures, visual feedback, and comparative data. This equipment can also be used to obtain measurements for professional voice users, such as singers. This technology includes a variety of computer-based systems, which allow for aerodynamic, spectral, acoustic, and perceptual analyses of voice. Pre-surgical baselines obtained using this instrumentation may be compared to data collected post-surgically in order to demonstrate changes and improvement.

Dr. Naomi Eichorn, Ph.D.,directs the Cognition, Language, and Speech Laboratory (CLAS), which focuses on how cognitive processes, such as attention and memory, interact with speech and language functions. Current research in the lab examines contributions of attention to the occurrence of speech disfluencies and the implications of this relationship for the development and persistence of stuttering. She is interested in how aspects of cognition, such as attention, working memory and other executive functions interact with speech and language processes. A major goal of her current research is to determine how attentional factors influence the course of developmental stuttering in young children. The phenomenon of natural recovery during the preschool years makes this age group particularly fascinating and highlights the need for research identifying factors related to stuttering outcome. Dr. Eichorn is also examining how manipulating attentional resources while speech is being produced affects fluency in adult speakers with and without stuttering disorders. #SLP2b #SLPeeps #CSD2021
