This year, only 25 individuals were chosen for this distinction out of the organization’s 145,000 members. The official Awards Ceremony will be held at ASHA’s annual convention on November 17 to 19, 2011, in San Diego, California.

Dr. Myers was nominated for this award by three colleagues including ASHA Fellow and Adelphi Professor Robert Goldfarb. The recommendations praised her teaching skills and contributions to the study of cluttering. Cluttering is a fluency disorder that affects one’s ability to convey messages to others in a clear and concise manner. Dr. Myers has dedicated much of her life to learning about, teaching about, and treating this disorder. She is considered by the International Cluttering Association (ICA) to be one of the pioneers who put cluttering on the map in the field of speech-language pathology in the United States. Her work on delayed auditory feedback treatment of cluttering, contributions to clarifying the dis-fluency characteristics of cluttering, and development of clinical strategies for cluttering, stand out among her many achievements in the field.

Dr. Myers says she was first attracted to the field of speech-language pathology because of her interests in psycholinguistics. Cluttering appealed to her because of the complexity and multidimensional nature of this disorderas it encompasses nearly all aspects of communication. Dr. Klaas Bakker of Missouri State University (co-sponsor for the Fellowship), said she “has raised the quality level of the treatment of individuals who clutter.”

Dr. Myers graduated from the University of Maryland (B.A. Psychology), and The Pennsylvania State University (M.S. Speech-Language Pathology and Ph.D. Speech-Language Pathology). Some of her awards include the Fulbright Specialist Award to teach at Hong Kong University (2011), and the Special Citation Award from Long Island Speech-Language-Hearing Association (October 2008) nominated by Dr. Elaine Sands of Adelphi University. Dr. Myers has also co-authored numerous publications including Cluttering: A Clinical Perspective (1992) with her chief sponsor for the Fellow Award, Dr. Kenneth O. St. Louis of West Virginia University, and Clinical Management of Stuttering (1995).
The American Speech-Language Hearing Association was founded in 1925, in Rockville, Maryland. It is the professional, scientific, and credentialing association for members who are speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists in the United States. Its vision is to make effective communication accessible and achievable for all.
