Dr. Amy Meredith’s primary clinical and research interest is in children with motor speech disorders. She has published and presented her research on childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) at national and international conferences.
Currently, she is investigating phonological awareness and early reading skills of children with CAS. She is also looking at the role of visual feedback using electropalatography and real-time spectrography in treatment of children with persistent speech sound disorders, including CAS.
In 2012, Meredith received a Martin Luther King Jr. Distinguished Service Award for the innovative strategies she uses to educate students, including those from diverse backgrounds, as well as for her dedication to provide services to children with disabilities and their families. Read the full award announcement in the WSU Spokane Campus Bulletin. Read more about WSU’s Martin Luther King Jr. Distinguished Service Award.
Meredith has given numerous workshops for practicing speech-language pathologists across the country on assessment and treatment of CAS. Prior to receiving her doctorate, she worked in the public schools, hospitals, and private practice settings as a speech-language pathologist.
