We invite you to join us during the Fall Semester...online!

The group will provide a casual and comfortable place for participants to talk, share experiences, and offer support to one another. The group will also allow participants to gain new information to help them with their everyday lives.

Yvonne Rogalski's Research Highlights
Yvonne Rogalski publishes research on the relationship between trained ratings and untrained listeners’ judgments of global coherence in extended monologues: The article describes a comparison between trained ratings of global coherence (topic maintenance) and untrained listener’s judgments of topic maintenance and attention/interest. Findings provide preliminary external validity for the 4-point global coherence rating scale and support its clinical utility.
