Aimee Dietz, PhD, CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist specializing in neurogenic communication disorders and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Dr. Dietz is an associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Cincinnati, where she teaches courses in the areas of AAC, aphasia, and motor speech disorders. Her primary research interests concern the development of AAC interventions, which help people with aphasia simultaneously recover language and compensate for deficits. Specifically, Dr. Dietz is interested in using neuroimaging technologies such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) as biomarkers for AAC treatment-induced language recovery in people with aphasia.
