Linda Norrix, PhD, CCC-SLP, received her bachelor’s degree from The University of WI-Madison, her master’s degree from Denver University, and her PhD from The University of Arizona. She joined the University of Arizona's Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences in 2002 after completing post-doctoral training at the UA in the Speech Perception Laboratory of the late Dr. Kerry Green. Her clinical, teaching, and research interests and expertise are in the areas of Pediatric Audiology.

At the graduate level, Dr. Norrix teaches the Advanced Audiological Evaluation Lab and Pediatric Audiology. She has had 15 publications in peer-reviewed journals since 2012.

Over the last 10-14 years, Dr. Norrix’s primary role has been to mentor student clinicians at off-site clinics, including Ocotillo Learning Center in the Sunnyside School District, and Tucson Medical Center. At Ocotillo Learning Center, Dr. Norrix teaches graduate student clinicians in best practice for performing hearing screenings for children currently attending the preschool, and for children being evaluated through Child Find for preschool services. At Tucson Medical Center, she mentors graduate student clinicians who are learning to perform and interpret pediatric diagnostic tests, including behavioral techniques and the physiological methods of otoacoustic emissions and the auditory brainstem response. In addition, Dr. Norrix trains our graduate students in the importance of cross-check principles and how to make clinical decisions and recommendations that will improve the overall well-being of the infant or child.
