Megan-Brette Hamilton Instructor Bio:

Dr. Megan-Brette Hamilton is an assistant professor of Communication Disorders at Auburn University and an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist. She spent 10 years working as a speech-language pathologist in New York city schools, where her students were primarily African American and Latino/a. From the beginning of her career in communication sciences and disorders, she has always been interested in understanding the influence of language and culture on communication, including the areas of diagnosed language disorders, language processing differences, and language variations. Specifically, Dr. Hamilton's research centers on the classroom experiences of African American English-speaking children and other speakers of nonmainstream dialects. She is curious about the paralinguistics of dialect, teacher-student communication interactions, and the role of dialect in acquiring Mainstream American English literacy. She also collaborates with Dr. Laura DeThorne to raise awareness regarding how race and culture intersect with our understanding of disability. Dr. Hamilton has presented her work internationally, has consulted with teachers and speech-language pathologists, and maintains a website ( dedicated to increasing the understanding of cultural-linguistic diversity.
