Windi Krok is a clinical assistant professor in the department of Speech Language and Hearing Sciences. Windi has worked as teaching faculty at The George Washington University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research has focused on examining how input factors enhance learning of language structures and identifying clinical indicators of language disorder. Her 11+ years of clinical work with preschool and school-aged children have highlighted the importance of clinically relevant research that leads to the development of effective evidence-based early identification and treatment techniques. Windi’s recent work on an American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation Clinical Research Grant focuses on validating an assessment tool for differentiating toddlers with transient early language delays from those at elevated risk for persistent DLD.
