Kathy J. Jakielski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is the Florence C. and Dr. John E. Wertz Professor in Liberal Arts and Sciences at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. She serves as Chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders where she has taught, mentored, and supervised undergraduate students in the classroom, research lab, and clinic for 18 years. Dr. Jakielski has over 30 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults with severe speech sound disorder (SSD), including childhood apraxia of speech (CAS).
