Research Interests:

Dr. Krueger’s research specializes in improving treatment outcomes for children with speech sound disorders. This includes exploring factors that may influence treatment outcomes, such as age at the start of treatment, investigating methods to improve clinical teaching of pre-service speech-language pathologists, and improving our understanding of the developing sound system in typical and disordered populations.
