Faculty receives renewed grant for cochlear implant consultation services
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has recently awarded two Missouri State University faculty a renewed grant of $26,528.45 for their cochlear implant consultation services. The funding was provided to:
- Jill Oswalt, clinical director for the Missouri State Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic
- Karen Engler, clinical associate professor for the Missouri State Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic
“This award allows us to continue to serve area professionals, educators to children who are deaf, speech pathologists, classroom teachers and administrators,” said Oswalt.
In the six years of this project, Oswalt and Engler have been able to serve more than 50 districts stretching across all nine regions within the state of Missouri, providing consultation relating to educational needs, assistive technology needs, sign or oral communications needs and classroom acoustics.
