Associate Professor

Dr. Centeno, a bilingual speech-language pathologist, conducts research in two related areas focused on minority adults in post-stroke rehabilitation. Specifically, one area examines Spanish-/Spanish-English-speaking adults with agrammatic verb impairments after a stroke. Spanish-speaking individuals represent a large group in many neurorehabilitation centers in the United States and in the world. Another research area centers on the assessment of neurorehabilitation services for ethnically diverse adults with neurogenic communication impairments. Dr. Centeno brings a multidisciplinary understanding to the assessment and intervention of ethnically mixed adult caseloads with neurogenic communication disorders in the United States (Centeno, 2017; Centeno, Ghazi-Saidi, & Ansaldo, 2017; Centeno & Kohnert, 2009). 

Dr. Centeno, a frequently invited presenter at national and international conferences, has participated in state, national, and international professional committees on multicultural issues in communication disorders. He is a member of various professional organizations, including the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Academy of Aphasia, Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS).
