Title: Use of Ultrasound Biofeed in Speech Intervention for children with hearing loss and Cleft Palate


Sue Ann S Lee is an Associate Professor in the Department of Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. She has earned her Master’s degree from The Ohio State University and her PhD in Speech Pathology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research interest lies in speech characteristics in children with and without speech sound disorders and bilingualism. Her recent research focuses on examining speech therapy efficacy using various technologies such as ultrasound and telepractice. She has received external grants from the National Institutes of Health, CH Foundation and the South Plains Foundation. Her work has been published in multiple high impact journals such as the Journal of Child Language and Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research. She currently serves as an Editorial Board Member for Clinical Archives of Communication Disorders and Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology.


Speech-language pathologists frequently provide visual feedback during treatment to help clients visualize articulatory gestures and movements for various speech sounds. While traditional visual feedback approaches incorporate visual cues using mirrors, figures or diagrams, alternative methods of visual feedback are gaining more attention in current research. These alternative methods include the use of acoustic analysis, electropalatogaphy and ultrasound biofeedback
