Jean K. Gordon, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
Jean K. Gordon is Director of PhD Studies and Associate Professor in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at the University of Iowa.
Jean Gordon's research focuses on language production in typical and disordered aging, especially in individuals with aphasia. Two major areas of focus are comparing the mechanisms of word retrieval and its breakdown in these two populations, and examining mechanisms of fluent language production. She also investigates the role that language production patterns play in perceptions of aging and aphasia.
