Lisa Archibald worked as a clinical Speech-Language Pathologist (S-LP) for over 15 years providing services to children and adults, in schools, hospitals, and other facilities. Currently an Associate Professor in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Western Ontario, Lisa studies links between memory and language processes in individuals with communication disorders. Lisa’s work has also focused on S-LP-educator school-based collaborations. She was part of an international team of researchers and stakeholders considering terminology and profile for children with an unexplained, persistent language disorder, now known as developmental language disorder (DLD). As a member of the international committee of RADLD.org and founding member of DLDandMe, Lisa has been active in advocacy campaigns for DLD. Recently, Lisa developed The DLD Toolbox, an online resource for S-LPs to support diagnostic decision regarding DLD.
