Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I am a certified Speech-Language Pathologist in NY interested in neurophysiological investigations of language processing in specific sociolinguistic situations (such as the diglossic situations in Arabic and African American Vernacular English). I am also interested in typical and atypical Arabic language development and evidence-based practices in the assessment and intervention of children who speak Arabic as their native language in Arab countries and the diaspora. I am currently investigating language assessment in Arabic heritage speaking children in the United States, aphasia recovery in spoken and Modern Standard Arabic, emergent literacy development, and phonological development in Moroccan Arabic speaking children. 

I am a big believer in interprofessional education and research and all of my scholarly queries are collaborative in nature mainly with Arabic linguists or neuroscientists, etc. 

Other interests: speech pathology curriculum, leadership, and reading
