Award to honor pivotal career in speech research
Date:10/15/2010

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has announced plans to award Dr. Emily Tobey of UT Dallas its prestigious Honors of the Association for her pioneering research and academic leadership.

Tobey holds the Nelle C. Johnston Chair in Communication Disorders in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) and conducts much of her research in the Callier Center for Communication Disorders. In selecting her for its highest honor, ASHA cited her study of speech production by cochlear implant users, her groundbreaking studies in oral rehabilitation and brain imaging, and her many leadership roles. The award will be presented to Tobey and other recipients in November in Philadelphia.

"Emily Tobey's research and service contributions to improving the life of those with hearing disorders and diseases is remarkable," Dr. William Yost, professor and chairman of speech and hearing science at Arizona State University, wrote in his letter supporting Tobey's nomination. "Her body of work has been substantial and significant, which to me is the definition of what is meant by receiving Honors from ASHA."

Tobey said she is pleased to receive this special recognition from her fellow researchers and clinicians. Out of more than 140,000 ASHA members, only 200 have been awarded the Honors of the Association.

"Although I receive this award as a personal award, it clearly is not," she said. "The award represents the efforts of the Dallas Cochlear Implant Program, a joint enterprise between UT Dallas, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children's Medical Center, to provide our community with a first-rate clinical and research team. I am proud to be associated with the team and thrilled by the recognition of our quality program."

Tobey has made some of the most important contributions concerning the longitudinal effects of cochlear implantation on children during her decades-long focus on speech production and oral
