    About the author

    Judith Kuster is an American Speech-Language and Hearing Association certified speech-language pathologist and an emeritus professor in the Department of Speech, Hearing and Rehabilitation Services, Minnesota State University, Mankato.


    The Internet provides access to many valuable resources for professionals and students in communication disorders and sciences as well as for persons with communication disabilities and those who are part of their lives.

    Previous versions of this guide were provided in both html and ascii formats. By version 5 the ascii format had grown to well over 100 pages downloaded. Starting with version 6, a decision was made to provide only mailing lists in ascii. As the information continued to grow on the Internet, version 7 integrated the information with the former Communication Disorders Home Page. Supported by a Teaching Scholar Fellowship, awarded by Minnesota State University, Mankato, the site was updated, reorganized and revised as Version 8, summer 1999. Version 9 (November 2010) has deleted several sections (Discussion forums and electronic newsletters, Commercial products and businesses related to Communication Disorders, Efficacy information on the Internet in Speech-language Pathology and Audiology, and Internet links for learning about the net, building web pages, etc.). The most up-to-date and relevant sites are Speech-language therapy materials on the Internet, the Stuttering Home Page, and Information about the author's publications and presentations.
