Since 1978, Pam Marshalla has taught hundreds of continuing education workshops to tens of thousands of speech-language pathologists in the United States and Canada. Pam is a "clinician's clinician" who discusses the nitty-gritty of therapy methods and procedures based on research evidence, historical writings in articulation and phonology, and her own three decades of clinical experiences.
