Dr. Greg Turner, Professor

Greg Turner joined the Department of Communication Disorders in 1995. He chose to come to Central because the faculty members were sincere and caring. He and his family wanted to live in a smaller community atmosphere that Warrensburg provided, but they also liked the fact that Kansas City is so close.

Dr. Turner completed his baccalaureate degree in Speech Pathology at Western Michigan University and his master’s degree in Communicative Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He stayed at the University of Wisconsin to complete his Ph.D. in 1997.

Before coming to Central, Dr. Turner worked as a clinician providing contractual services to nursing homes. He is responsible for a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses within the department including; American Phonetics, Speech Science. Fluency Disorders, Voice Disorders and Motor Speech Disorders. Dr. Turner also provides supervision of undergraduate and graduate student clinicians in the Welch-Schmidt Center for Communication Disorders.

Dr Turner research interests focus on the areas of speech science, motor speech disorders, and voice disorders. Dr. Turner consistently presents research findings at both national and international conferences. The majority of his presentations involve both undergraduate and graduate students.
