About Thomas Campbell


I completed my BA and MA in communication disorders at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and my PhD in communicative disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I spent several years as a speech-language pathologist and researcher at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where I conducted studies of the speech and language skills of children recovering from traumatic brain injury. From 1987 to 2006 I was a faculty member in the Department of Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh, and the Director of Audiology and Communication Disorders at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. At the University of Pittsburgh and Children’s Hospital I participated in a number of NIH funded projects including longitudinal studies of developmental outcomes in children recovering from severe traumatic brain injury and in children with and without histories of middle ear effusion. I also conducted studies on the physiological development of speech in typical and atypical speakers. In August 2006, I joined the faculty at UTD as a professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences and Executive Director of the Callier Center for Communication Disorders. My research will continue to focus on the identification of physiological, environmental and genetic variables for the early identification of speech and language disorders in children.
