Deanna Britton is a Speech-Language Pathologist at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) and doctoral candidate in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington (Seattle). In her clinical practice, she sees patients with swallowing, speech, respiratory, language, and other communication problems that occur due to a variety of neurological and other pathological conditions. She is Board Certified in Neurogenic Communication Disorders in Adults by the Academy of Neurological Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS). She has published and presented on topics related to dysphagia, augmentative and alternative communication, respiratory support for speech and swallowing, motor neuron disease, and spinal cord injury.
Maggie-Lee Huckabee, PhD practiced as a clinical speech language pathologist for 15 years before the frustration of never knowing 'the answers' led her to an academic career. She is now Founder and Director of the University of Canterbury Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research and Professor in the Department of Communication Disorders in Christchurch, New Zealand. She still hasnt found 'The Answers' but is trying, with research interests focusing on the complexities of behaviorally-driven neural adaptation and biomechanical change leading to swallowing recovery following neurological injury.
In her 15-year academic career, Maggie-Lee has co-authored three books, 14 book chapters and has published 80 peer reviewed scientific papers. A recent research programme has resulted in a reduction in pneumonia rates from 27 to 10%, with a subsequent savings in health care costs for the regional health board of over $1.4 million in one year. For this research, she was awarded one of the top research medals from the University of Canterbury: The Innovation Medal. She is well known as a clinical teacher and is an invited speaker by health systems worldwide to provide clinical training, particularly in rehabilitation practices.
