I first met Tom Hixon in 1989 when I interviewed for a position as a research scientist in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona. The position was to be funded by Tom's R01 grant, and the task was to develop a way to measure speech breathing in infants and toddlers while leaving them relatively unencumbered. The measurement condition was important, as it enabled the children to produce sounds and beginning words naturally. Once measurement methods were validated, the job would involve a multi-year venture dedicated to collecting data and analyzing speech breathing kinematics from a large cross-section of typically developing infants and young children. At the time of my interview, I recently had completed a post-doctoral fellowship involving the collection of EMG and cortical evoked potentials from awake and active infants and toddlers. Tom reasoned that if I could successfully scrub the scalps of awake and active toddlers and stick electrodes on their heads, then chest wall kinematics should be a breeze. I got the job!
