Shelley B. Brundage, Ph.D., CCC, Fellow-ASHA, BCS-F, is an Associate Professor in the Speech and Hearing Science department at George Washington University in Washington DC, USA. She teaches courses in stuttering, research methods, and neurogenic communication disorders. Her research addresses the linguistic, social, and emotional variables that influence stuttering, and methods for measuring these complex interactions in systematic and controllable ways. This focus has led to recent research projects involving treatment for persons with autism who stutter and to systematic analyses of stuttering in bilingual children and adults. Her interest in systematic measurement led to innovative work validating virtual reality environments for use in stuttering assessment and treatment. Dr. Brundage has been an IFA member since 2006, and is currently the Chair of the IFA Membership Committee.
