So who are the Dudes?

Russell Cross is a speech therapist from the UK and works with the Prentke Romich Company whom he has been with since 1995. He is the owner of a number of US patents and his research interests are in corpus linguistics, machine syntax and assistive technology.

Chip Clarke is a speech therapist who has been in the assistive technology arena since 1989. Chip started a private practice called Asistive Technology Works, Inc which has now evolved into an AAC equipment distributor. Chip also consults with Prentke Romich.

The Speech Dudes website introduces them as Dude 1 and Dude 2 with a tag line that reads “The Edgy Side of Speech Pathology; sharp, profane, but never dull.”

Reminiscent of Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss, these two guys like to have fun.  I had a great time talking to them.

Their blog, Speechdudes.wordspress.com, has been featured in the ASHA Leader magazine. The dudes describe the blog as a stream of consciousness.
