Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU)
The research within The Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU) addresses both basic and applied research in speech and language processing. Our applied research includes significant efforts in biomedical research areas such as computational biology and the nascent field of neurobehavioral engineering, which encompasses topics as diverse as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and the discovery of new behavioral "markers" of neurological disorders such as autism and early-phase Alzheimer's disease.
Design to LearnThe D2L Projects focus on research and strategies developed to address the educational needs of children and adults with severe disabilities, such as multiple and "low-incidence" disabilities including deafblindness and autism.
Health disparities are preventable and unjust differences in health, access to health care, or quality of health care. We are currently working on two projects focused on health disparities affecting people with disabilities:Project Intersect: Addressing Health Disparities at the Intersection of Race, Ethnicity, and Disability and Health and Health Care Disparities among Individuals with Disabilities
