The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders would like to congratulate Erica Johns Freestone ‘20 for successfully defending her master’s thesis.
Freestone investigated the effect of yogic breathing during speech therapy on outcomes for a patient with aphasia and apraxia of speech. Results revealed that the client demonstrated improvement across measures of speech production and attention. She has applied to present her research at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association national convention in 2020.
Congratulations to Freestone for contributing to this important body of research!
