Grace: Hey everybody. My name is Grace, a fourth-year speech and hearing sciences undergrad.

Natalie: And my name is Natalie, a third-year speech and hearing sciences undergrad. We are both student assistive technology coordinators at the Iowa Reading Research Center.

Grace: Today, we are excited to announce the start of our podcast, Speaking of Literacy, where we will be interviewing experts in the field of speech, language, and hearing sciences to better understand the role of language skills on reading ability.

Natalie: The field of speech and hearing is vast and can be misunderstood in literacy development, and we aim, through hearing from a variety of professionals in the field, to educate ourselves and others about their role in overall reading development.

Grace: Stay tuned for the release of our first episode with Dr. Kristi Hendrickson, who is an assistant professor of communication sciences and disorders and directs the Psycholinguistics Lab at the University of Iowa.
