WELCOME!! I have 39 years experience working with bilingual children who have a variety of speech and language disorders, and their families.I have been a full-time professor at SJSU since 1997, and have taught part-time during several years before that. I have written, and lectured extensively locally, nationally and internationally on topics related to bilingualism and speech and language disorders, assessment and treatment as well as collaboration with interpreters and translators in the field of communicative disorders.

I provide clinical services in Spanish, French, and occasionally in Polish. Please read my complete list of publications.
