Assistant Professor

Speech Pathology and Audiology

Dr. Dalton earned her B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Georgia, M.S.P in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of South Carolina, and Ph.D. in Linguistics (with an emphasis in Speech and Hearing Sciences) from the University of New Mexico.  Her clinical experience has focused primarily on adults with neurogenic speech and language disorders secondary to stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neurodegenerative disease.

Dr. Dalton teaches courses pertaining to adult language disorders and directs the Marquette University Building Rehabilitation Advances in Neurosciences (BRAIN) Lab. The focus of Dr. Dalton's work is to improve the assessment and rehabilitation of neurogenic communication disorders using neuroscience so that individuals experience a more complete recovery and return to important life pursuits.  To address this focus Dr. Dalton uses a variety of methodologies from behavioral speech-language therapy and pen-and-paper assessments to neuroimaging and brain stimulation.
