Deborah R. Welling, AuD, CCC-A/FAAA

Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Education

Department of Speech-Language Pathology


My interest is in assessment of very young & difficult-to-test populations & the role of audiology in SLP.

I am an Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Education in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at Seton Hall University. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in communication arts and sciences from Hofstra University; master’s degree in audiology from Queens College of the City University of New York; and doctoral degree in audiology from the University of Florida.

I am a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA); a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA); and a member of the New Jersey Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NJSHA), for whom I have served as Vice-Chair of the Higher Education Committee. I am also a member of ASHA Special Interest Group 9: Hearing and Hearing Disorders in Childhood.

Prior to my role as an Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Education, I spent more than 20 years in direct clinical service provision and supervision, with extensive experience in the behavioral assessment of the very young and difficult-to-test populations. I have also had extensive involvement with interdisciplinary screening and evaluation processes in the early intervention, preschool and school-aged populations, with an emphasis on (central) auditory processing assessment.

Since joining the faculty at Seton Hall University, I have been teaching undergraduate and graduate level courses that cover anatomy and physiology of the auditory system, fundamentals of sound (acoustics), basic and advanced audiologic measurement and interpretation, and aural habilitation and rehabilitation.
