BMI Associate Member
School of Communications Sciences and Disorders
Before completing her doctoral degree, Dr. Archibald worked as a clinical speech-language pathologist for 15 years providing services to children and adults with all types of communication disorders. In response to the considerable heterogeneity observed among children with developmental language disorders, Dr. Archibald has pursued a research program in the University of Durham, UK to understand children’s learning profiles and the deficits underlying them. In particular, her work has examined the relationship between linguistic performance and cognitive abilities such as working memory. Findings from Dr. Archibald’s research have important implications for the assessment and remediation of developmental language disorder, as well as other communication and learning disabilities.
