Anthony Koutsoftas, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Associate Professor
Department of Speech-Language Pathology

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at Seton Hall University. I have more than 12 years of experience as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I enjoy teaching students at the undergraduate and graduate levels and use a variety of approaches to classroom and online instruction including collaborative group work, applied projects, real life examples from clinical practice and critical analysis of educational policies and procedures for Speech-Language Pathologists in school settings. I currently teach Research Methods 1 and 2, and School Age Language and Literacy Disorders to graduate students, and Phonetics in an online format for undergraduate and non-matriculated students.

I worked as a school-based speech-language pathologist for five years for the New York City Department of Education. During that time, I had the opportunity to work with many children with language-based learning disabilities, and I decided to change the direction of my career toward studying how to improve academic outcomes for this population.

Currently, I am the Director of the Reading, Oral Language and Writing Lab (ROW-Lab) at Seton Hall University, where I study the development of and relationships among reading, oral language and writing abilities in children with and without language difficulties. The focus and mission of the lab is to identify interventions for children at risk for academic failure, and we currently have several exciting projects toward that goal. Current projects include studies of the writing process performance in children with and without language disorders and developmental differences among intermediate grade students.
