Ruth Altmiller Caputo

Ruth is currently completing her Clinical Fellowship in Speech Language Pathology in Waynesboro, Tennessee. While her day job includes working with kids with a variety of communication disorders, Ruth is also working to finish up her Masters degree here at WUSTL. Her love for language and communication led to her interest in research on literacy development, which is the purpose of her Masters project.

Keep it up, Ruth! We can’t wait to hear about your year in TN!
