About our Advisory Board Member: Dr. Judy Flax

Dr. Flax is currently the Research Coordinator of the Tallal Lab and a Senior Research Speech Pathologist for the Infancy Studies Laboratory at the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience (CMBN) of Rutgers University, Newark, NJ. Dr. Flax received her Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences from The Graduate Center, City University of New York.

She is a licensed speech pathologist with over 25 years of clinical experience in the areas of language-based learning disabilities. Prior to joining CMBN, she held the position of Research Speech Pathologist for Isabelle Rapin, M.D. at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York where she compared and contrasted language characteristics of autism versus those of specific language impairment.

Her current research interests include family/genetic studies of language-based learning disabilities, early predictors of later language and reading difficulties, language processing dissolution in the aging, and the development of assessment tools that target receptive language in toddlers and preschoolers with very limited verbal and motor skills.




The Cherab Foundation is a world-wide nonprofit organization working to improve the communication skills and education of all children with speech and language delays and disorders. Our area of emphasis is verbal and oral apraxia, severe neurologically-based speech and language disorders that hinder children's ability to speak.

The Cherab Foundation is committed to assisting with the development of new therapeutic approaches, preventions and cures to neurologically-based speech disorders. We bring together parents and medical, research, and educational professionals. Please join us and help to give our children a smile and a voice.
