Dr. Lindsay’s research examines how speech and language skills develop in children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, with a particular focus on language acquisition in children from the English-speaking Caribbean. In her dissertation research, she created a profile of phonological development for children who speak Trinidadian English and Trinidadian English Creole to be used by speech-language pathologists when conducting culturally competent speech sound assessment and treatment. A practicing clinician both in the United States and in the English-speaking Caribbean region, Dr. Lindsay uses her clinical experiences and questions to inform her research agenda and goals.
