Jon F. Miller, professor emeritus at University of Wisconsin—Madison and partner in SALT Software, LLC, took office Jan. 1 as 2011 president of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation.
Miller was a member of the faculty of Wisconsin’s Department of Communicative Disorders for 37 years and served in a number of administrative positions including department chair, coordinator of behavioral research, associate director for development, and acting director of the Waisman Research Center; he also was associate dean for research in the College of Letters and Science. He has conducted extensive research on language development and disorders in children with developmental disabilities and has created new assessment procedures.
A member of the ASHFoundation Board of Trustees since 2007, Miller is an ASHA Fellow and Honors recipient. He served on the Board’s Program Committee and helped launch the ASHFoundation’s Clinical Research Grant program, which has awarded almost $600,000 since 2008 to advance knowledge of the efficacy of treatment and assessment practices in audiology and speech-language pathology.
“It is a thrill to be the president of the ASHFoundation Board of Trustees,” Miller said. “I have been a supporter of the ASHFoundation’s work all of my career, and I look forward to challenging every ASHA member to support the next generation of scholars by making a contribution to the Foundation.”
Also joining the ASHFoundation Board of Trustees for 2011 are Thomas F. Campbell, professor and executive director of the Callier Center for Communication Disorders, University of Texas at Dallas; Judith A. LeDuc, a private-practice speech-language pathologist in Chicago; and Lisa Lucks Mendel, associate professor of audiology, University of Memphis.
The ASHFoundation is a charitable organization that supports the advancement of knowledge in communication sciences and disorders and seeks to improve the lives of people with speech, language, or hearing disorders by raising funds to support research grants, graduate student scholarships, clinical recognition awards, and special initiatives. Since its inception, the ASHFoundation has awarded $5,339,620 to almost 1,700 doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, graduate students, and leaders in the field.
