Associate Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders

Dr. Blanchet joined the Baylor faulty in 2012. Prior to coming to Baylor, he held faculty appointments at the State University of New York at Fredonia (2005-2012) and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (2002-2005). Dr. Blanchet is also a certified speech-language pathologist, as well as a person who stutters.

Education

  • B.A., State University of New York at Fredonia (1988)
  • M.S., Northeast Louisiana University (1990)
  • Ph.D., Louisiana State University (2002)

Academic Interests and Research

Dr. Blanchet has taught courses in areas such as fluency disorders, motor speech disorders, neuroscience, aphasia, voice disorders, medical speech-language, dysphagia, cleft palate, speech science, phonetics, research methods, and corporate speech pathology.  

Dr. Blanchet’s primary research areas are fluency disorders, motor speech disorders, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.  His specific research interests include university students’ perceptions of speakers who stutter and/or clutter, and the effects of delayed auditory feedback (DAF) on speech production in individuals with Parkinson’s disease

Teaching Responsibilities

  • CSD 5312: Fluency Disorders
  • CSD 5316 Motor Speech Disorders

  • CSD 5328: Dysphagia
