Our Location


We are located in the Children’s Speech Intelligibility Research and Education (CSPIRE) Laboratory in the Faculty of Rehabilitation at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta. 

CSPIRE’s mission is to:

  • Develop and evaluate measures of young children's speech intelligibility (that is, how well a child’s speech can be understood by listeners)
  • Understand the perceptual-acoustic bases of intelligible and unintelligible children's speech
  • Develop and evaluate innovative treatment programs to increase speech intelligibility in children with motor speech disorders
  • Translate this knowledge to practice
