Abstract: In this presentation, Dr. Shameka Stanford will discuss the importance of the clinician's role in addressing and combating bias, prejudice, and the school-to-confinement pipeline for youth with cognitive and communication disorders.
About the Speaker: Dr. Shameka Stanford is the FIRST AND ONLY Juvenile Forensic Speech-Language Pathologist in the United States and she specializes in Juvenile Forensics, Law Enforcement Interaction with youth with CD, and child language disorders. She is a professor in the Communication Sciences and Disorders department at Howard University and her research focuses on the Confluence and Impact of cognitive and communication disorders on the school-to-confinement pipeline, status offenses, involvement with the criminal justice system, law enforcement interaction, and criminal recidivism in youth placed at-risk for delinquency and crime (especially Black and Brown youth from under-resourced areas).
