Alan Kamhi is a Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. His early research focused on linguistic and cognitive abilities of children with specific language impairments (SLI) and mental handicaps. Later research focused on language-learning disabilities, culminating in a book co-edited with Hugh Catts, on language and reading disabilities. The third edition of this book was published in 2012. Recent articles have considered how to balance certainty and uncertainty in clinical practice, what SLPs need to know about auditory processing disorders, how to improve clinical practices for children with language and learning disorders, and how to assess and treat reading comprehension problems.
