Lisa A. Edmonds

PhD, CCC-SLP

Lisa A. Edmonds, PhD, CCC-SLP is a licensed speech-language pathologist and Associate Professor/Program Director for Communication Sciences and Disorders at Teachers College, Columbia University. Dr. Edmonds received her PhD from the University of Texas, Austin and her MA degree from The Ohio State University. Prior to her current position at Columbia, Dr. Edmonds was an Assistant Professor in Communication Sciences Disorders at The University of Florida and a Research Health Scientist at the Brain Rehabilitation and Research Center of Excellence at the Malcom Randall VA in Gainesville, FL. She was funded with a VA Merit grant to conduct a clinical trial with Verb Network Strengthening Treatment (VNeST), a treatment she developed to improve sentence production and discourse in persons with aphasia.

At Teachers College, Columbia University, Dr. Edmonds directs the Aphasia Rehabilitation and Bilingualism Research Lab. Her lab aims to: 1) develop and test treatment approaches and outcome measures for aphasia, including bilingual aphasia, 2) understand mechanisms of improvement resulting from various treatment approaches, 3) evaluate outcomes of treatments delivered via teletherapy, 4) develop assessment measures and treatment protocols that incorporate typing and computer use, and 5) describe normal language and related impairments in aphasia via various methodologies, including eye tracking. Most of the treatments developed in the lab are multi-modality (include spoken and written production and comprehension) and aim to facilitate generalized improvement to the production of spoken and written output in sentences and discourse.

Dr. Edmonds' primary research goal is to conduct clinical studies that can be translated for use by speech-language pathologists working in the field. She hopes that her courses provide information and tools helpful to practicing clinicians, and she welcomes follow-up questions via email.
