They will share challenges and solutions they have encountered in building this research capacity. Further, in light of the current global health crisis, panel members will consider how research efforts in this area might change in the future. The session will include an opportunity for discussion among panel members and the audience to problem solve the state of the art in CSD. This inaugural international symposium is supported by the American-Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation through its endowed Max D. and Ruth Steer Fund.
