About Diane Garst Walsh


I completed my education in speech-language pathology at the University of New Mexico (BA, 2002) and The University of Texas at Dallas (MS, 2004). I worked in a variety of clinical settings and as a research coordinator studying speech production in apraxia of speech. January 2009, I joined the clinical faculty at UT Dallas and currently teach undergraduate courses and supervise graduate students working with adults with disabilities, dementia and neurogenic speech-language disorders. I am involved in clinical research for speech production and discourse processing in adults with neurogenic communication disorders.


Research Interests


  • Neurogenic language and speech motor disorders in adults
  • Discourse production in aphasia and right hemisphere dysfunction
  • Collective memory and identify in Holocaust survivors and American veterans of World War II
