Speech therapist working with child. Research Seeks Participants to Study Speech Production Issues in Children  

Assistant Professor Breanna Krueger in the University of Wyoming’s Division of Communication Disorders is seeking participants (children 8-18) who struggle to produce the /r/ sound in their day-to-day speech. This study is a visual biofeedback treatment using ultrasound technology to help children see their tongue movements in real time to improve their production.

This inquiry is the next step in Krueger’s research line, which aims to improve treatment effectiveness and efficiency for children who struggle to learn difficult sounds such as /r, s, z/. The purpose of this investigation is to explore the “dose” of ultrasound biofeedback—in other words, what is the optimal amount of ultrasound therapy to induce effective change. To participate, or for more information, contact Dr. Krueger at
