Judith King


Alumna Judith King received her  Ph.D  from CDSS in 1989. Dr. King earned her BS and MS from Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA. We were delighted to make contact and find that Judy is now an Associate Professor at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. From her university bio we learned that Judy has served as a professor, advisor, and mentor to hundreds of students across her 25-plus year career there. Her clinical and research interests include voice, fluency, early intervention and increasing the number, diversity and cultural competence of the ASHA membership. 

Dr. King is a member of two of ASHA’s Special Interest Groups (Administration and Supervision; Communication Disorders and Sciences in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations).  She is also LSVT™ certified for the treatment of patients with Parkinson disease. Dr. King is particularly fond of working with Native American families and their children and has done so for over 30 years on the Hopi, Navajo, Apache, Havasupai, Hualapai and Mohave reservations.  She maintains strong professional ties with former American Indian students who are now practicing SLPs across the state of Arizona. Judy currently teaches a rich variety of courses in Speech Language Pathology which include Clinical Methods, Stuttering: Diagnosis & Treatment, Voice Disorders, Graduate Research and Clinical Practicum.




 Above, Judy is pictured with her lovely daughter Haley, now 12 yrs. old.  Judy wrote that fellow classmate Tina Roberts Farrell and her family passed through Flagstaff this summer (photo left). She also shared with us that she thinks of her fellow classmates “more often than you'll EVER know... Happy Holidays, dear friends, and Happy New Year!” You can see her in action using fellow classmate, Patty Walton and Mary Wallace's book, Fun with Fluency in photo-right. 


Congratulations on all of your accomplishments and good wishes for continued success in your valuable work & causes Judy!
