Dr. Farquharson is a speech-language pathologist who studies the cognitive, linguistic, orthographic, and environmental factors that influence how children with speech and language disorders acquire literacy skills. One line of work has examined how working memory, language, and orthography may influence children's abilities to learn new words, read, and achieve age-appropriate speech production. A related line of work has examined how speech therapy-level variables, such as SLPs' stress, therapy quality, and IEP goals, may impact the outcomes seen in children with speech and language impairments. As a former school-based SLP, she is interested in determining how these lines of work can be used to create better assessments and treatments for SLPs to use in serving this population of children.
She has been an active ASHA member since she was an undergraduate student and has served many leadership roles at the state and national level. Currently, she is a member of the ASHA Convention Planning Committee in the area of Speech Sound Disorders and is an ad hoc reviewer for several journals.
Dr. Farquharson offers graduate courses on preschool language disorders and literacy disorders, and undergraduate courses on language acquisition. Her research activities are open to Emerson students who want to become engaged in clinical research exploring the literacy trajectories for children who have speech and language disorders.
My research goal is to improve neonatal care through rigorous pharmacoepidemiology research that will evaluate the comparative risks and benefits of medications that, despite limited evidence, are commonly used in the treatment of neonatal disorders: (diuretics, acid suppressants, antiepileptics, inhaled steroids, bronchodilators, NSAIDs). My patient-focused research aims to improve neonatal outcomes by informing clinical practice decisions regarding medication administration.
