Venu Balasubramanian, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Associate Professor

Department of Speech-Language Pathology


Co-edited a special issue of the Journal of Neurolinguistics on 'Acquired neurogenic fluency disorders' (2009 in press)

I joined the Seton Hall University Speech-Language Pathology program at its inception in 1998. Previously, I taught at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of South-Western Louisiana at Lafayette, and the University of Wisconsin at River Falls. I am a certified (CCC-SLP) member of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association and licensed to practice speech-language pathology in New Jersey.

I am an active member of several research organizations, including, Cognitive Neuroscience Society, International Neuropsychological Society, International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association, International Fluency Association, and Theoretical and Experimental Neuropsychology (TENNET) group. I also regularly present at the annual meetings of the Academy of Aphasia.

My current research interests concern the status of language and cognition in aphasia and traumatic brain injury, model-based treatment of aphasia, prosodic processing in brain damaged adults, neurological and cognitive- aspects of speech production in apraxia of speech, and acquired neurogenic stuttering, cognitive model-based analysis of dyslexias and dysgraphias, and the effects of aging on language and cognition and encourage student participation in my ongoing research projects.

Currently, I mentor student research (masters' and doctoral) in the areas of 1) aphasia,/recovery from aphasia, and 2) phonology-orthography interface in bilinguals and bilingual aphasics. I also currently teach courses in neuroscience, aphasia, traumatic brain injury, and neuromotor disorders of speech in adults.
