Biography

 Dr. Millett has been an educational and clinical audiologist for 30 years in school boards in Ontario and Alberta, and is currently an Associate Professor and Academic Coordinator in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education Program.  Her areas of research are in educational audiology, which is the interface between clinical audiology and education. Today, when babies are screened for hearing loss at birth, and amplification technology improves every year, more students with hearing loss are able to attend their neighbourhood schools, but this still requires academic, social, language and technological support from teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing and educational audiologists.  Dr. Millett chaired the Canadian Interorganization Steering Group for the development of the Canadian Guidelines for Auditory Processing Disorder in Children and Adults: Assessment and Intervention.  She was awarded Honours of the Association for the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists in 2015.
