Jonet Artis is a Dean’s Fellow in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. She earned a B.A. in Linguistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and an M.Ed. in Communication Disorders at North Carolina Central University. After obtaining her master’s degree, she practiced clinically as a speech-language pathologist in a variety of settings. Her experiences as a speech-language pathologist motivated her to return to UNC to pursue a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences.
Jonet’s research interests include the early identification of children diagnosed with autism and other developmental disorders. She is also interested in early interventions focused on the language development of young children. Due to her clinical experiences, she has a desire to conduct research that will assist underserved communities who have access to limited diagnostic and intervention services.
