Richard I. Zraick, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Professor                                               

 

Graduate Courses Taught:

  • Voice Disorders
  • Neurogenic Speech Disorders
  • Neurogenic Language Disorders
  • Advanced Anatomy and Physiology for Speech
  • Craniofacial Speech Disorders

Undergraduate Courses Taught:

  • Voice and Stuttering

  • Anatomy and Physiology for Speech

  • Introduction to Speech and Hearing

  • Phonetics

Current Research:

  • Recently led a national multicenter validation study for the Consensus Auditory Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE-V). Project sponsored by ASHA's Special Interest Division 3 (Voice and Voice Disorders).  The CAPE-V is a newly-developed instrument for use in evaluating voice patients and documenting patient-related therapy outcomes. A paper reporting this study is in print:

  • Recently completed a normative study of laryngeal aerodynamics in adults.  Project sponsored by KayPENTAX to develop norms and examine age and gender differences using their new Phonatory Airflow System (PAS). A paper reporting this study is in print:

  • Conducting a series of studies with colleague Sam Atcherson examining health literacy and readability of patient-related materials in Communication Sciences and Disorders. A number of recent papers are in print:
  • Atcherson, S.R., Richburg, C.M., Zraick, R.I., & George, C.M. (2013). Readability of questionnaires assessing listening difficulties associated with (central) auditory processing disorders. Language, Speech and Hearing Services in Schools, 44, 48-60.

  • Zraick, R.I. Atcherson, S.R., & Brown, A.M. (2012). Readability of patient-reported outcome questionnaires for use with persons who stutter. Journal of Fluency Disorders, 37, 20-24.
  • Atcherson, S.R., Zraick, R.I. & Brasseux, R.E. (2011). Readability of patient-reported outcome questionnaires for use with persons with tinnitus. Ear and Hearing, 32(5), 671-673.

  • Developing standardized (aka simulated) patients for clinical skills teaching and testing.  This is an ongoing line of research where various types of communicatively-impaired “patients” and their “family members” are developed and used for simulated clinical encounters. A number of papers are in print or press:
  • Zraick, R.I. (2012). A review of the use of standardized patients in speech pathology clinical education. International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, 19 (2), 112-118.
  • Zraick, R.I., Allen, R.M. & Johnson, S.B. (2003). The use of standardized patients to teach and test interpersonal and communication skills with students in Speech-Language Pathology. Advances in Health Sciences Education, 8, 237-
    248.
  • Zraick, R.I. (2002). The use of standardized patients in Speech-Language Pathology. American Speech-Language Hearing Association Perspectives on Issues in Higher Education, 5 (1), 14-16.
  • Zraick, R.I. & Allen, R.M. (2002). Using standardized patients to train and test Speech-Language Pathology students. The Innovative Professor in Communication Disorders: The American Speech-Language Hearing Association Perspectives on Issues in Higher Education, 1, 17-19.
