Two ASHA journals have new editors: Rhea Paul is the language section editor of the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, and C. Melanie Schuele is the editor of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools. Their three-year terms began Jan. 1.
Rhea Paul, an ASHA Fellow, is professor and founding director of the speech-language pathology graduate program at Sacred Heart University, an affiliate at Haskins Laboratories and professor emerita at Southern Connecticut State University. She has served as associate editor for the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders for four years, is an editor for the Handbook of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders and the Encyclopedia of Autism Spectrum Disorders, and has been a reviewer and guest editor for JSLHR, the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and LSHSS. She received faculty scholar awards from Portland State University and Southern Connecticut State University, the 1996 Editor’s Award from AJSLP, and the inaugural Ritvo/Slifka Award for Innovative Clinical Research from the International Society for Autism Research in 2010.
C. Melanie Schuele, an ASHA Fellow, is associate professor in the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on early literacy development, particularly phonological awareness, and complex syntax acquisition in children with specific language impairment and children with typical language development.
Prior to receiving her PhD, Schuele worked as a speech-language pathologist in schools and early intervention programs. She continues her involvement in school-based practice as a project director for two U.S. Department of Education Personnel Preparation grants and through her research.
Scheule has chaired ASHA’s Research and Scientific Affairs Committee, served on the Science Advisory Board and Lessons for Success Steering Committee, and was associate editor for LSHSS.
“We are very pleased to announce these new editors,” said Anne Smith, chair of ASHA’s Publications Board, “and express our sincere gratitude to the outgoing editors, Janna Oetting and Marilyn Nippold, for their extensive service and their commitment to advancing the quality and impact of the ASHA journals.”
