Mona Griffer Ed.D, CCC/SLP, ASHA Fellow
I am an Associate Professor and the Founding Director of the Master’s Program in Speech-Language Pathology. I earned a Master's of Science Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Brooklyn College, CUNY in 1982 and a Doctor of Education Degree in Child and Youth Studies from Nova Southeastern University in 1997. As a Board Certified Child Language Specialist (BCS-CL), my clinical areas of expertise and research interests include family-centered early intervention service delivery, pediatric language development and disorders, emergent literacy, pediatric oral-motor/feeding development and deficits, multicultural issues, and the supervisory process. I'm an active member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), serving as a former site visitor for the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA), the 2016 Chairperson of the Multicultural Issues Board, on numerous Convention Program Committees. Currently I serve on ASHA's Committee on Honors (2019-2021) and the Editorial Board for Communication Disorders Quarterly (CDQ), a publication of The Council for Exceptional Children: Division for Communicative Disabilities and Deafness.
