Assistant Professor Casey Keck, Ph.D., and Associate Professor April Garrity, Ph.D., faculty members in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, have received a $6,449 grant to investigate the ability of graduate students in the Communications Sciences and Disorders program to write and implement functional communication goals in the program’s teaching clinic, the RiteCare Center. 

Garrity and Keck will use the grant money, which was awarded by the Georgia Southern University’s Faculty Research Committee, to fund an undergraduate research assistant, collaborate with a biostatistician, purchase clinical testing tools and provide monetary incentives to participants for their willingness to partake in the research.

The research will be conducted through the Cognition, Learning and Social Participation (CLaSP) Research Lab. The CLaSP Research Lab was co-founded by Garrity and Keck and focuses on examining teaching, learning, cognition, communication, quality of life and participation through quantitative and qualitative methods and action research approaches.
