Anne van Kleeck, PhD, CCC-SLP, is a Professor and Callier Research Scholar at the Callier Center for Communication Disorders in the School of Behavioral and Brain Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her research focuses on language and emerging literacy skills in children who are language impaired as well as the broader group of children who are at risk academically. Some specific areas of interests include (a) parents' language socialization processes in the home that provide their young children with foundations for later literacy and academic success, and (b) issues related to language assessment in the preschool population. Her most recent work focuses on what she refers to as the academic talk register in preschoolers and children in the early elementary school years, and its importance to academic achievement. Dr. van Kleeck's previous publications include several edited books, nearly 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, and 25 book chapters. She has given over 250 invited and peer-reviewed presentations nationally and internationally.
