The discussion is a follow-up to the webinar Treating R Errors: Evidence-Based Cueing and Practice Strategies, available as part of the ASHA Learning Pass subscription or for a la carte purchase.

  • Describe at least one insight from the discussion that you can share with others in your work setting

What Participants Say:

"I loved the webinar with these two presenters last year and this one was great too! I also loved the short format! So many times in the webinar presenters spend forever setting it up or concluding. In this case, having a super short time allowed us to get to the meat of the information quickly, and I could access it on my lunch break! If they wanted to do these on a regular basis, I would join every time! I also love how realistic they are about R - so many SLPs get caught up in the weeds!"

"I appreciated the practice ideas and the nod to other resources for us to consider as therapists. Talking about when to dismiss and educational impact was helpful."

"I would love to continue getting more courses from this research center. Their presentation style and resources have been so great!"

Presenter Information

Megan C. Leece, MA, CCC-SLP, received a master’s degree in speech-language pathology from Northwestern University and then moved to Central New York to start a career as an SLP. Leece completed a clinical fellowship working in a health care setting, then moved to a school setting, working as a school-based SLP for 9 years. In 2010, Leece joined the clinical faculty of Syracuse University, working as a supervisor in the on-site Gebbie Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. When Dr. Jonathan Preston arrived in 2014, Leece became the Project Manager of the Speech Production Lab. At the lab, Leece has been involved in multiple NIH-funded research projects studying biofeedback treatments for residual speech sound errors, including those due to childhood apraxia of speech. In 2019, Leece followed a passion for research and left the clinical faculty to work in the lab full-time. When not keeping busy with research, Leece can be found listening to Americana music and watching the English Premier League with husband and two boys.
