Dare to Liberate Language

Professor, Communication Sciences and Disorders

College(s): Liberal Arts & Sciences

Words are the building blocks of communication. Without them, we can’t share an idea, verbalize affection, or tell our stories. As director of the Word Learning Lab within the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, McGregor researches how people with developmental language disorders learn, remember, and use words. From 2012-2015, McGregor was the director of the DeLTA Center (Development and Learning from Theory to Application), which is an interdisciplinary research community at UI dedicated to exploring the processes of learning and development.
