About the Speaker:

Sonja graduated from the U of T SLP Clinical Master’s program in 2007. After working primarily on Dysphagia assessment and management for two years in both a rehabilitation research setting and an acute care setting, Sonja decided to pursue doctoral studies with Dr. Catriona Steele. Sonja’s research focuses primarily investigating kinematic and temporal variability of swallowing on Videofluoroscopy. She plans to defend her dissertation in June 2013.
