Faculty & Staff Directory

Tanya Eadie joined the Speech and Hearing Sciences faculty as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2003, and became an Associate Professor in 2009. She also is an adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Eadie received both her Master's of Science in Communicative Disorders and her Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario, Canada. In June 2003, she was awarded the Governor General's Gold Medal for achieving the highest academic average for all graduate students at the University of Western Ontario. Concomitant with her doctoral work, Dr. Eadie also worked clinically as a speech-language pathologist serving both pediatric and adult outpatient and inpatient populations for three years. She is a past associate editor and editor for Perspectives on Voice and Voice Disorders (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Special Interest Group 3), and has served on several ad hoc committees related to clinical assessment in voice disorders for ASHA. She has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles and serves as an ad hoc reviewer for numerous journals in speech-language pathology and otolaryngology. In 2012, Dr. Eadie and her colleagues Drs. Carolyn Baylor, Kathryn Yorkston, Michael Burns, and Deanna Britton received the editor’s award from the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (Baylor et al., 2011).

In the past few decades, the field of speech-language pathology has begun to recognize the validity of comprehensive evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. This is reflected in ASHA's adoption of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as the framework for the Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology (ASHA, 2001). As such, Dr. Eadie's long-term goals are to develop a clinical evaluative protocol by which clinicians can more effectively and accurately report the degree of vocal impairment using physiologic, acoustic, and auditory-perceptual measures. In addition, she hopes to continue to expand upon the current clinical database addressing the degree of impact on daily voice activity and participation as affected by various types of voice disorders, including those affected by head and neck cancer.

Dr. Eadie’s current courses include both undergraduate and graduate classes related to assessment and treatment of voice disorders, anatomy and physiology of the speech mechanism, and teaching pedagogy at the college level.
