Kathy J. Jakielski Instructor Bio:
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). Her research focuses on genetic bases, differential diagnosis, and intervention efficacy of children with SSD-CAS. She enjoys the challenge of thinking phonetically about severe SSD, and recently published a phonetics-based intervention for children with CAS and is co-authoring a textbook on phonetic science for clinical use. After dreaming most nights about phonetic symbols, teaching the next generation of speech-language pathologists and thinking about CAS is what gets her out of bed in the morning.
