Molly Beiting is a PhD candidate in communication sciences and disorders. Her research program focuses on identifying individual-level factors that impact response to treatment and communication outcomes. Molly’s long-term goal is to design adaptive and scalable interventions for children with complex communication needs. She recently received an F31 award from the NIDCD/NIH to support her dissertation research: The Impact of Individual-Level Factors on Progress in Speech Therapy for Children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS; 1F31DC018723-01).
Molly's research and teaching practice is informed by her experience as a licensed pediatric speech-language pathologist. Recent presentations have included a seminar for parents and clinicians related to diagnosis and treatment of co-occurring CAS and autism (Apraxia Kids Virtual Education Series), as well as an overview of legal, ethical and practice considerations related to the use of telepractice during the COVID-19 pandemic (Temple University CSD Proseminar).
Molly is deeply committed to professional and community service. She is a weekly volunteer with Philly Reading Coaches and is the founding Co-Editor-in-Chief of CommonHealth, a peer-reviewed journal of the College of Public Health at Temple University.
