Professor Snow joined the Department in the Fall semester, 1997. Since 1992, he had been a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Arizona/Scottish Rite Child Language Center, a specialty program in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences focusing on specific language impairment in preschool children. His research interests are in child language and prosodic phonology. Currently Dr. Snow is planning a longitudinal study of intonation and speech rhythm in infants and toddlers. One of the long-range goals of the research is to determine whether the prosodic characteristics of infant speech can provide "early indicators" of developmental language impairment.
