Allen Designated National Speech Pathologist of the Year

Marybeth Allen of the UMaine Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders recently was named the Speech-Language Pathologist of the Year by the National Stuttering Association (NSA).

The association recognized Allen during its annual meeting in Fort Worth, Texas for her outreach and organization efforts on a national level on behalf of youths who stutter.

“She dedicated much of her time to ensuring our Family Program chapters were successful and was always available to assist and guide chapter leaders when needed,” the association says in its online newsletter.

Allen has coordinated several youth days across the country, served on the NSA board of directors for six years and is currently the chapter leader of the Eastern Maine Chapter of the NSA. She is the clinical supervisor and associate faculty member in the Speech-Language Pathology laboratory at the University of Maine.
