New article authored by School of Communication Science and Disorders faculty member Dr. Kelly Farquharson and doctoral students Anne Reed and Mary Allison Moody was recently accepted for publication in Language Speech and Hearing Services in Schools by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). 

Anne Reed HeadshotThe article “Subtract Before You Add: Toward the Development of a De-Implementation Approach in School-Based Speech Sound Therapy”  represents an effort to help support school-based speech language pathologists by providing action steps to improve the implementation of best practices. Anne Reed further explained, “SLPs, and in particular those working in schools, are always on the lookout for processes, procedures, and treatment guidance that will benefit the children they serve and make their work less burdensome. Hopefully, this publication provides practical suggestions, but also gives SLPs permission to stop doing some of the things that are no longer serving them or their students.”

Mary Allison Moody HeadshotThis article marks Mary Allison Moody’s first publication and Reed’s second! When asked about this exciting achievement, Moody shared that it brought her a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment saying, “After spending the past several years reading and analyzing academic works as part of my research, it was a surreal experience to read a work I helped author and realize that I have taken the first steps in becoming a researcher. Without the amazing support of my advisor, Dr. Farquharson, and the CSD faculty, I would not have the opportunity to be involved in the exciting research that FSU continually sponsors in the SCSD.”
