Dr. Fanning's research program is focused on determining the effectiveness of using an Integrated Stuttering Intervention approach across the lifespan to explore the mechanisms of client change and the role of resilience in the client's life. Ultimately, she is interested in translating this research into clinical practice via modular intervention guidelines that speech-language specialists can implement across clinical settings. She is co-PI on a funded research project investigating how the use of medical case-example instruction influences faculty and student perspectives of curriculum quality. Past research areas of focus include fostering research partnerships between local educational agencies and university research facilities, family-centered intervention with families from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, and computerized language intervention.
