Communicative Sciences and Disorders


Dr. Christina Reuterskiöld's research focuses on developmental language disorders in children. Her main interest is the influence of non-linguistic and linguistic context on language processing and production. Dr. Reuterskiöld is certified as a Speech Language Pathologist by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and the Swedish Board of Social Care. Prior to joining NYU, Dr. Reuterskiöld held positions as clinical supervisor, professor, and researcher in the Department of Logopedics and Phoniatrics at Lund University in Sweden, where students from NYU attend a study abroad program.

Communicative Sciences and Disorders

The Communicative Sciences and Disorders Program offers rigorous training for students seeking high-quality education in speech-language pathology.


Computerized Analysis of Language Transcripts

Technology-based methods for transcription and analysis of language samples in the assessment of communication disorders. How the analysis of language samples collected during spontaneous speech production plays an important part in the assessment of such disorders and provides a key feature of research involving this population. Students will video-record an interaction between two speakers, learn to use digitalized image and sound for transcription of language samples and use a computerized method (the SALT program) for analyzing language samples collected during spontaneous speech.
