Two new ASHA journal editors began three-year terms on Jan. 1: Marilyn Nippold is the editor of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS) and Janna Oetting is editor of the language section of Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSLHR).
Marilyn Nippold
Nippold is a professor in the Communication Disorders and Sciences Program at the University of Oregon, where since 1982 she has taught and conducted research in language development, language disorders, and stuttering. She received her BA in philosophy from the University of California, Los Angeles; her MA in communicative disorders from California State University, Long Beach; and her PhD in speech-language pathology from Purdue University.
A former school-based speech-language pathologist, Nippold is a prolific researcher. She has published more than 90 journal articles and book chapters, and her popular textbook, Later Language Development, is now in its third edition. She received the ASHA Editor’s Award for the article of highest merit in LSHSS in 1983 and in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (AJSLP) in 2001. She also has served as an associate editor for AJSLP since 2008, has served on ASHA’s Publications Board, and is a reviewer for many scientific journals, including Journal of Child Language, JSLHR, LSHSS, and Communication Disorders Quarterly.
Nippold is a frequent presenter at state, national, and international conferences. Her current research projects include studies of expository discourse and word knowledge in children, adolescents, and adults with typical and impaired language development.
Janna Oetting
Oetting is a professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the Interdepartmental Program in Linguistics at Louisiana State University, where she also directs the Language Development and Disorders Lab. She received her MA in speech-language pathology and her PhD in child language from the University of Kansas.
With R03 and R01 awards from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, Oetting is examining the grammatical profile of kindergarteners with and without specific language impairment in the contexts of African American English and Southern White English. Her research has also focused on child language development and disorders within the context of linguistic diversity and poverty, and on prevention methods in the field of speech-language pathology.
She has received support from a number of sources, including the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Education, the Louisiana Board of Regents, the Children’s Trust Fund, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation, and the Irene W. Pennington Foundation. Oetting also has helped graduate students secure funding from the National Institutes of Health and the Southern Regional Education Board, and has served as the mentor to an undergraduate student in the McNair Summer Research Program.
Oetting is an active member of the Louisiana Speech-Language-Hearing Association, serving as vice president in 2000 and president in 2001. An ASHA Fellow, she is a member at-large of the Multicultural Issues Board and has served as chair of the Language Science Subcommittee for the ASHA Convention and as JSLHR associate editor for language (1999–2001).
ASHA members have full-text access to all four ASHA journals, including a complete archive dating back to 1936.
